Mission Overview

Scheduled to lift-off from Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula in December, the ‘A Data With Destiny’ mission will be Rocket Lab’s 23rd Electron launch overall and sixth mission of 2021. 

'A Data With Destiny’ is the latest in a multi-launch agreement for BlackSky between Rocket Lab and Spaceflight Inc., which is providing integration and mission management services for BlackSky. This mission will deploy the 10th and 11th satellites of BlackSky’s low Earth orbit constellation and is scheduled to launch during a 14-day launch window that opens in December.

The two Gen-2 satellites on this mission, along with those previously launched by Rocket Lab for BlackSky, represent the largest number of satellites BlackSky has dedicated to a single launch provider to date.
