The mission will carry several commercial small sats to orbit before Electron’s upgraded first stage undertakes a guided re-entry in a significant step towards reusable Rocket Lab vehicles.

But until then we will wait and see. Good Luck Rocket Lab in your ground tests, we hope all of the data you collect is positive.
