    Nice of you kids to jettison toxic battery into our fragile ocean. Be proud, sort of.

    Sooo…. Elon musk says we’re in a climate crisis, then starts firing rockets off all over the place? 💩

  3. Jeffrey Stewart

    But wait, there’ll be no one to watch future launches, nor launch vehicles as the world ends in 8, no 10, no 12 years!

    launching from new zealand? I thought it was easier to launch from nearer the equator. Why from NZL?

    Congrats to another successful launch!

    You guys are fantastic, Peter Beck has created a company I think all Kiwis can be rightly proud of.RocketLab are the kiwi version of SpaceX, they both share the same passion and have a charismatic CEO in charge and a young driven workforce.And I love listening to the launch control guys and their kiwi accents reminds me of Murray, Brett and Jerome from Flight of the Conchords.

    My boss lives at Waimarama, on the coast under the flight path. Him and a few others say they heard a loud boom that rattled windows a few minutes after the launch. Could this have been the first stage coming back through the sound barrier?

  14. Tony Rusi

    You guys are great! Why not give Elon a run for his money with a 9 meter diameter carbon fiber rocket using algae derived biodiesel and liquid oxygen?

    와~~ 로켓랩 1단 부스터 재진입 영상 너무 멋지당!! 엔트리번 없이 어떻게 진입장벽을 통과했을까나.. 신기하고 대단해!

  16. Sujowi

    A question – the rocket flare was very red and orange when viewed from Napier – also due to the smoke haze in the air?

  17. Deon Hamilton

    how can such a small country be able to build and launch rockets, New Zealand is truly amazing

  18. Brian Henry

    Why does it go sideways at 206 kLm and yet keep accelerating?

  43. Sujowi

    My first live rocket launch, thanks Rocketlab! Brilliant viewing from Bluff Hill, Napier! Such a beautiful warm, clear night for watching it head heavenwards from Mahia over Hawke Bay – a beautiful trail too (due to the Australian bush fire smoke?) . Simply magical!

    Great launch well done! It looked like you had some combustion instability on the upper stage, was that case?

  57. Jeremy Cox

    Congratulations Rocket Lab on another successful launch and reaching orbit. I look forward to seeing you guys launch from the US and recovery of the first stage booster in 2020. Best of luck as we go into 2020 🖖

    Parameters are far more restrictive for you guys than larger rockets on reusability. Inspirational! Good luck.

  62. Marc Weerts

    Great job! Also – this may be the most beautiful launch zone I’ve ever seen. New Zealand is amazing…

  63. Jay DiNitto

    17:47 – Did someone just walk into the CR from the beach?

  69. Simon Graham

    In the control room view at 17:47, I love seeing the woman at the back wearing shorts and flip flops (or “jandals” as we call them in NZ). So this soooo NZ. Great job Rocket Lab.
