@RocketLab Launch alert 🚨 Our 47th mission and next Electron launch from LC-1 is scheduled for launch NET April 24th for South Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and NASA.
Onboard Electron for South Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) is NEONSAT-1, an Earth observation satellite with a high-resolution optical camera designed to monitor for natural disasters along the Korean Peninsula by pairing its images with artificial intelligence.
Electron will also carry NASA's Advanced Composite Solar Sail System, or ACS3, to test new materials and deployable structures for solar sail propulsion systems that use sunlight to propel the spacecraft. Much like a sailboat is powered by wind pushing against a sail, solar sails employ the pressure of sunlight for propulsion, eliminating the need for conventional rocket propellant
