On Saturday, the American company Rocket Lab, which specializes in the field of space science, announced the loss of one of its electronic missiles, after its launch failed.

And Rocket Lab announced through its official account on the “Twitter” site, that the first part of the missile launched as planned, but during the second stage of ignition, the engine was cut off, and the missile failed to reach its orbit.

The company added, “The missile was carrying two satellites belonging to a company that works in the field of satellites.

” And the company added in a subsequent tweet, that “a team of specialists is currently working on identifying the problem and correcting it for the safe return of the missile without causing any harm to the population on the planet or the special launch or recovery crews.

” The New Zealand-based company assured skeptics of its ability to control the missile it lost, saying, “The missile will be recovered as planned and the whole thing does not need any concern.

” The company is coordinating with the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate the causes of the missile anomaly and to determine the root cause of this anomaly, and to avoid that problem in the future.

It is reported that of the 20 previous launches of Rocket Lab, 17 of them have succeeded, while 3 others have failed
