Astra Space has launched the first suborbital launch.

On July 20, the launch complex on Kodiak Island off the coast of Alaska accepted the first commercial mission. It launched the small carrier Rocket 1, developed by the Californian company Astra Space. Initially, the suborbital test was planned for the spring, but then it was postponed due to technical problems.

Despite the fact that after the test more than a week has passed, its result is still unknown. Astra Space has not yet commented on the test results. The site of the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does not contain a record of the launch of Rocket 1, unlike, say, the recent flight SpaceShipTwo. In response to a request from the Spacenews publication, the FAA spokesperson explained this by the fact that there was some kind of failure during the launch, but without specifying any details.

In turn, the management of Alaska Aerospace, which owns the launch complex, confirmed the fact of launch and stated that the customer was satisfied with its results.At the same time, Alaska Aerospace did not provide any information on the progress of the flight, citing a non-disclosure agreement.

Unlike most modern aerospace startups, Astra Space is not particularly keen to advertise its activities. The company rarely provides any information about what it is working on. According to the old presentation of Astra Space, the Rocket 1 rocket has a length of 12 m, runs on liquid fuel and is able to lift up to 100 kg of cargo into low-Earth orbit. The carrier attracted attention in February, when a helicopter of the ABC7 TV channel accidentally filmed it during preparation for bench tests at the naval aviation base in Alameda.
