Rocket Lab

From Our Changing World, 9:45 pm on 30 October 2008

Peter Beck has focused his research on rocket propulsion for more than a decade and he's now preparing to launch the Southern Hemisphere's first privately developed rocket into space early next year. His company Rocket Lab in Auckland has developed a sub-orbital rocket that he plans to use as a research tool to study climate change. Veronika Meduna meets Peter Beck in the Rocket Lab workshop to talk about New Zealand's part in the space industry.
