I stead of GDP or CPI, I think a better measure of the economy is the number of suicides that have occurred inbetween rockets launches.

The Electron rocket did its job. Normally that is where the rocket company signs off, but Rocket Lab also made the Photon which will take the instruments into the desired lunar orbit.

And after it deploys the payload, it's going to get yeeted off into solar orbit.  They have interplanetary ambitions for that version of Photon, so I expect they're going to stay in contact and keep tabs on it as long as they can.

HyperCurie engine on the Photon has made two successful burns.
