epic catch! Rocket Lab catches falling propellant with helicopter after launch of 34 satellites

Rocket Lab just did something we’ve never seen before.

rocket lab sent 34 satellites into orbit today (May 2) with its two-stage system Electron launcher, which lifted off from the company’s New Zealand site at 6:49 pm EDT (2249 GMT). Pretty impressive, but it was the action in the down direction that was unprecedented.
