      If successful this will be Rocket Lab's first commercial launch and second rocket to reach orbit after Still Testing's successful launch in January. It's Business Time will carry a handful of small satellites including the IRVINE01 cubesat built by Irvine, California high school students; two Lemur-2 cubesats for Spire; and the NABEO drag sail demonstrator for end of life satellite deorbiting for Bavaria.
