According to Space, two-stage Rocket Lab boosters rose to the sky from the company’s launch site in New Zealand. All seven satellites were safely deployed within 56 minutes after take-off, according to Space.

These payloads include two satellites called Prometheus, which will be managed by the US Special Operations Command, and the ACRUX-1 satellite, which has been upgraded to the Melbourne Space Program, an educational institution that gives Australian students practical experience in space projects.

“BlackSky Global-3, the largest mission spacecraft, is a small satellite developed and designed by BlackSky, the leading provider of geospatial intelligence, satellite imagery and global surveillance services,” Rocket Lab’s representatives wrote in the mission.

Rocket Lab aims to significantly increase access to space using Electron, a two-stage booster of 57 feet and 4 feet wide. The total net load on the rocket was 80 kg.
