Rocket Lab's first time launching with a preflown Rutherford engine. The first stage (containing the reused Rutherford) was initially intended to launch the mission after this one, but was swapped to this mission after issues were encountered with the booster initially intended for this launch.
F40 1st Stage
Acadia Mission 1
Capella Space introduced its latest generation of satellites named "Acadia", which offer increased imaging capability and improved communications connectivity. These satellites, smaller and lighter than previous models, provide higher resolution and detection capabilities, enabling better Earth observation and more accurate decision-making.
Capella Space's new generation of satellites features synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology, allowing them to capture Earth images in all weather conditions and at any time of day or night. In addition, these satellites have enhanced communication capabilities, allowing them to transmit data and images faster and more efficiently.
