Rocket Lab USA

Peter Beck founded Rocket Lab in 2008 following a decade and a half of propulsion research and market development in the international space community. Peter has since established Rocket Lab both in New Zealand and the United States as a premier institute for innovative space systems. As comfortable on a CNC mill as he is in a board room, Peter is both the head visionary and technical adviser for the Electron program.  Peter is an acclaimed scientist and engineer, having been awarded a Meritorious Medal from the Royal Aeronautical Society for service of an exceptional nature in New Zealand aviation, and the Cooper Medal, presented by the Royal Society bi-annually to those deemed to have published the best single account of research in physics and engineering. In 2015, Peter was awarded ‘Innovator of the Year’ at the ‘New Zealander of the Year’ awards.
