Astra, the fastest privately funded company in history to reach space, has successfully sent a batch of satellites into orbit for Seattle-based Spaceflight Inc. from an Alaska launch pad. The event took place over a month after Astra’s launch failure in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
This time around the California-based company’s LV0009 launch vehicle lifted off from the Pacific Spaceport Complex on Alaska’s Kodiak Island. According to Astra’s CEO Chris Kemp, the mission was a success, giving a lift to Seattle-based Spaceflight Inc.
Astra went public on the Nasdaq stock exchange in July 2021 and has only become more ambitious ever since. The rocket-building company is planning to raise its launch rate to one per day by 2025 and to deploy thousands of satellites for a telecom mega-constellation. Over the past 12 months, Astra had varied results with its LV0006 rocket failed to reach orbit after sliding sideways at liftoff. But, in November, the LV0007 rocket effectively launched a test payload to orbit for the U.S. Space Force.
The company’s mission to improve life on Earth from space continues to impress folks from all over the world and it looks like no challenges will put a stop to their hopes for success.
