Small-lift Launch Vehicle
A small-lift launch vehicle is a rocket orbital launch vehicle that is capable of lifting up to 2,000 kg (4,400 lb) of payload into low Earth orbit (LEO). The next larger category consists of medium-lift launch vehicles.[1] The first small-lift launch vehicle was the Sputnik rocket, it put into orbit an unmanned orbital carrier rocket designed by Sergei Korolev in the Soviet Union, derived from the R-7 Semyorka
R-7 Semyorka
ICBM. On 4 October 1957, the rocket was used to perform the world's first satellite launch, placing Sputnik 1

to cover the commercial small satellite launch segment (CubeSats).[3] Its Rutherford engines are the first electric-pump-fed engine to power an orbital rocket.[4] In December 2016, Electron completed flight qualification. The first rocket was launched on 25 May 2017,[5] reaching space but not achieving orbit.[6] During its second flight on 21 January 2018, Electron reached orbit and deployed three CubeSats.[7] The first commercial launch of Electron, and the third launch overall, is expected to occur in 2018.[8]Contents1 Design 2 Intended usage 3 Launch sites 4 Launch statistics 5 Launch history 6 Future launches 7 See also 8 References 9 External linksDesign[edit] Electron uses two stages with the same diameter (1.2 m, 3 ft 11 in) filled with RP-1/ LOX

Orbital Inclination
Orbital inclination
Orbital inclination
measures the tilt of an object's orbit around a celestial body. It is expressed as the angle between a reference plane and the orbital plane or axis of direction of the orbiting object. For a satellite orbiting the Earth
Earth
directly above the equator, the plane of the satellite's orbit is the same as the Earth's equatorial plane, and the satellite's orbital inclination is 0°. The general case for a circular orbit is that it is tilted, spending half an orbit over the northern hemisphere and half over the southern
