Rocket Lab launched seven smallsats Monday night on a mission that also advanced efforts to reuse the Electron rocket. The Electron lifted off at 9:27 pm EDT (0127 GMT) from the company's Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand. The rocket successfully deployed four NASA Starling cubesats to test "swarm" technologies, two Spire cubesats for collecting weather data and Telesat's LEO 3 smallsat to test technologies for its Lightspeed constellation. Rocket Lab successfully recovered the Electron booster after splashdown as it continues efforts to eventually reuse the booster.
