The Terran-1 is a planned small launch vehicle by Relativity Space, which will be built mostly by 3D printing.
Relativity Space plans to build a Terran-1 rocket in only 60 days from raw materials by 3D printing the structure, payload fairing as well as the engines.
The first stage is powered by 9 Aeon-1 engines, fueled by liquid oxygen (LOX) and methane. Stage 2 is powered by a single restartable Aeon-1 Vacuum engine. Terran-1 will have a payload of 1250 kg to a 185 km low earth orbit and 900 kg to a 500 km sun synchroneous orbit.
Relativity Space has leased Launch Complex 16 at Cape Canaveral from the US Air Force. The first test launch is planned for late 2020.
