Relativity Space cancels 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 failures due to weather and scope safety delays.

The 3D-printed rocket, called Terran 1, was scheduled to launch on a first flight from Launch Complex 16 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida during a three-hour window Saturday afternoon. Despite three attempts, the company was unable to launch the rocket after suffering two last-minute failures, including one that ignited its engines, and a wait when the boat encroached into the offshore safety zone.
