A 3D printed rocket could soon take flight. Where does it fit in to a growing launch market?
Relativity Space’s Terran 1 rocket is set to take flight from Cape Canaveral this week. It’s mostly built with 3D-printed parts and would be the first of its kind should it reach orbit during its first launch.
