Rocket Lab delays Electron booster launch and recovery test to Monday

Rocket Lab has postponed the launch of an Electron booster it hopes to snatch from the sky with a helicopter after liftoff until Monday (May 2) due to weather.

Unfavorable weather conditions are the main reason for the launch delay, Rocket Lab officials said in an update, but the company is taking the time to perform final checks on its recovery system for the Electron rocket reusability test.
