Did you know New Zealand has a space program?

Rocket Lab is a commercial rocket company in NZ, delivering small payloads into space and to suborbital heights for scientific research and experiments. Solar physics, micro-gravity, climate change measurements and launching ashes into space for memorials are just some of the applications of these small, efficient, low-cost rockets. The research from the program has developed several innovative technologies including environmentally-benign fuels.
