Relativity to establish rocket factory at NASA Stennis
Posted: Sun, Jun 16, 2019, 10:08 AM ET (1408 GMT)
Small launch vehicle developer Relativity announced Tuesday it will establish a rocket factory at NASA's Stennis Space Center. The company will lease a 220,000-square-foot building at the center and convert it into a factory that will ultimately produce 12 to 24 of its Terran 1 rockets a year. The company is receiving support from the Mississippi Development Authority, an economic development agency, and plans to invest $59 million in the factory. Relativity chose the site in part because it already does engine testing at Stennis. The company says it remains on schedule for a first launch of its rocket in late 2020.
