Rocket Lab postpones Electron booster launch and recovery test to Monday

Rocket Lab has delayed the release of an Electron booster that it hopes to catch from the sky with a helicopter after takeoff to no earlier than Monday (May 2) due to weather.

Unfavorable weather conditions are the main reason for the launch delay, Rocket Lab officials said in an update, but the company is taking the time to make final checks on its recovery system for the Electron rocket re-use test.
