Nine Aeon engines make up the first stage and Aeon Vac engine is the second stage. Relativity Space is using both liquid oxygen and natural gas as propellants. This is the first time a rocket is being launched into space via natural gas. If this is a good event Relativity plans to use methane gas for its missions to Mars. (

Ellis and Noone have Terrain R in production now. She is 216 feet tall and 16 feet wide. Terrain R is able to foist twenty-five times more payload into low-orbit space than Terrain 1 can. She is a reusable rocket and will be ready for her debut in 2024. (

Keep an eye out for these two innovative and ground-breaking guys. Their rockets are sure to shape our future in space.
