Rocket Lab fires space-flown engine in reusability milestone

Rocket Lab just took another step toward booster reusability.

Rocket Lab fired up a Rutherford engine from one of its space-flown Electron boosters this week for the very first time. The test fire is a milestone in the company’s efforts to create boosters that can go to space and back again repeatedly,  as the first stages of SpaceX’s workhorse Falcon 9 already do.
