Rocket Lab Electron/Synspective StriX-β Launch

Launch of Synspective’s StriX-β synthetic aperture radar satellite is scheduled for 2022-02-28 at 20:35 UTC from Rocket Lab’s Mahai Peninsula, New Zealand launch facility. This will be the first launch from the second launch pad at the site. The satellite will be placed in a 561 km Sun-synchronous circular orbit and will be the second in Synspective’s planned 30 satellite constellation providing frequent-revisit all-weather global radar imagery.

Here is a pre-launch preview from Everyday Astronaut, including an idiot “it’s”.
