Yesterday, Wednesday, the first space rocket made with 3D printing technology was successfully launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, but a “technical problem” occurred during the flight that prevented it from reaching its orbit, according to a live broadcast. Terran 1, developed by Relativity Space, is an unmanned rocket that was supposed to collect data and prove that a 3D printed spacecraft can withstand harsh elements just like a regular spacecraft. The company said during the live broadcast. Per the launch of the missile, Tiran-1 failed to reach its orbit due to a defect that occurred during the separation of its second layer. Two initial attempts to launch the missile in recent days were canceled at the last moment due to technical problems.
The launch of this missile has generated great interest because the success of the operation could help revolutionize the missile launch industry. I call this mission “Good luck, have fun.” And 85% of the rocket mass is made using 3D printing technology. The company aspires to increase this percentage to 95% in the future.
