Relativity and mu Space to launch a satellite to Low Earth Orbit on the 3D printed rocket Terran
Hearing about Relativity is like watching a new episode of a TV series that is taking place in the space. Since the launch of its 3D printed rocket, Terran, the company keeps adding to its portfolio partnerships that help it advancing the future of humanity in space.
To date, the company has signed a multi-launch contract with Telesat, a satellite operator, to support Telesat’s LEO constellation, and with the US government. This latter partnership includes a 20-year exclusive-use Commercial Space Launch Act (CSLA) agreement at the NASA Stennis Space Center E4 test complex, and membership on the National Space Council advising the U.S. White House.
However, what brings our attention today is the recently signed partnership with mu Space, a Thai satellite and space technology company. Both companies will launch a satellite to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) on Relativity’s 3D printed rocket named Terran 1.
This partnership will give Relativity the opportunity to further explore the integration of machine learning, software, and robotics with metal 3D printing technology. As a reminder, the company was recently granted patent for its 3D Printing technology, therefore has a solid base to produce rockets within a couple of days instead of years.
Moreover, the two partners share a common interest in space. Relativity’s goal is to 3D print the first rocket on Mars and build an interplanetary society so that humans can experience something unique. As for mu Space, the company aims to create space technologies to ensure safer lunar missions and to enable human settlement on the moon within the next 10 years.
“mu Space is accelerating space technology development in Asia, and we consider the moon as the next explorable body in space beyond Earth,” said James Yenbamroong, CEO and founder of mu Space. “Relativity has the vision, team, and technology to deliver exceptional advantages in launching mu Space’s payloads, and supporting our goal of creating an interplanetary society in the future.”
