Amazon changes rockets for its Kuiper satellites
It won’t be much longer before we get a glimpse of Amazon’s internet-from-space. The first two satellites of the space-based Kuiper constellation will be launched early next year. However, they won’t be aboard ABL Space Systems’ rocket as previously planned. Instead, they will hitch a ride on the Vulcan rocket, which is being developed by United Launch Alliance (ULA), a Boeing-Lockheed Martin joint venture.
