Relativity Space aborts the launch of Terran 1, the 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 cut short by two separate aborts amid delays from weather and remote security.

The 3D-printed rocket, dubbed Terran 1, was scheduled to launch Saturday afternoon on a debut flight from Launch Complex 16 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida over a three-hour period. Despite three attempts, the company was unable to launch the missile after two last-minute aborts, including when the engines started, and one well as the boat entered the offshore safety zone.
