RELATIVITY SPACE SECURES CALIFORNIA FACILITY TO PRODUCE FIRST FULLY 3D PRINTED ROCKET

US-based Relativity Space has secured its new headquarters in the hub of the aerospace community in Long Beach, California. The facility will be home to both the company’s business operations and its fully automated, metal additive manufacturing production line.

The aerospace company wants to show additive manufacturing’s true capabilities in space flight technology. Their vision is to build humanity’s future in space, starting with a fully 3D printed rocket to launch satellites into orbit.

Relativity Space believes the lack of fixed tooling in its production facility will launch them into an industry-leading position to meet the growing demands of the satellite market.

If all goes according to plan, the aerospace company plans to initiate its first launch in 2021.
