Watch Rocket Lab try to catch a booster with a helicopter during launch today

Rocket Lab will try to notch a huge and dramatic reusability milestone today (April 29), and you can watch it live.

The California-based company is scheduled to launch 34 satellites with its two-stage Electron rocket today from its New Zealand site during a two-hour window that opens at 6:35 p.m. EDT (2235 GMT). The mission plan includes an attempt to catch the Electron’s falling first stage with a helicopter shortly after liftoff — something that’s never been done before.
