The test flight of the American space company Astra’s rocket type “Rocket 3.3” failed due to technical problems. The company broadcast the test live on its website.

Rocket Launch Pacific Spaceport Complex – The rocket was launched from Alaska onto Kodiak Island at 3.35 CEST on Saturday (Sunday morning 0.35 CE) local time.

After launch, the rocket deviated from its course: instead of ascending, it moved sideways. About two and a half minutes after departure, the engines may have been turned off. The rocket fell to the ground and the transmission through the cameras stopped. So that she could not reach the orbit of the earth.

“We had technical issues, but we got flight data for 2.5 minutes. Every startup, whether successful or not, is an opportunity for us to learn. Our team will explore the data and use this information to improve our next launch,” the company said in a Twitter message.

Later, Chris Kemp, founder and managing director of Astra, wrote on Twitter that video and flight data intelligence would shut down an engine as soon as the plane took off. “Everything that happened after that made me very proud of our team. Space can be hard, but we didn’t give up like this rocket,” he said.

The most recent failed launch marks the company’s third failed attempt to reach Earth’s orbit in a year. In September 2020 there were problems with the Rocket 3.1 control system. In December, Rocket 3.2, already in space, was unable to reach orbit because it ran out of fuel. The company plans another launch by the end of 2021.
