Astra to delay test flights of next-gen rockets

According to Bloomberg reported on the 5th, the U.S. rocket launch company Astra Space is expected to postpone the first test flight of its next-generation rocket, launch activities because the company intends to lay off employees to cut costs and prioritize other projects.

Astra had announced in a statement on Friday that it had made layoffs of about 25 percent of its workforce since the start of the quarter, with 70 people laid off on August 4th. Since then, the company has reallocated 50 engineers and fabricators from its launch services division to a division designed to build spacecraft engines.

In March, Astra also announced that the next-generation rocket would complete its first test flight by the end of this year, a setback that will delay the original process.

In September 2022 Astra announced that it would no longer launch the remaining TROPICS satellites for NASA, but would still launch other similar science missions for the agency.

Astra’s first launch of a TROPICS (Constellation of Small Satellites for High Time-Resolved Observations of Precipitation Structure and Storm Intensity) satellite in June 2022 ended in failure when the engine on the second stage of its rocket shut down prematurely before delivering the payload into orbit.

Astra plans to develop a larger launch vehicle, code-named “Rocket 4,” after it no longer provides rockets to NASA.
