A new rocket, Venus missions and more: Rocket Lab’s Peter Beck is aiming big in space

Rocket Lab is developing another booster.

The California-based company, which routinely gives small satellites dedicated rides to orbit with its Electron rocket, announced on Monday (March 1) that it’s going to build a new, bigger launcher called Neutron. That same day, Rocket Lab also revealed that it will become publicly traded after a planned merger with Vector Acquisition Corporation, a move that will help fund the Neutron work.
