Relativity Space aborts launch of Terran 1, world’s first 3D printed rocket

An attempt by startup Relativity Space to launch the world’s first 3D-printed rocket on Saturday (March 11) was punctuated by two separate aborts due to delays in weather and range security.

The 3D-printed rocket, dubbed Terran 1, was scheduled to launch from Launch Complex 16 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida during a three-hour window on Saturday afternoon for a maiden flight. Despite three attempts, the company was unable to launch the missile after suffering two last-minute aborts, including its engines ramping up, and a halt when the boat entered the offshore safety zone.
