Relativity Space puts away Terran 1 rocket, focuses on larger, reusable Terran R

The very first 3D printed rocket is removed after a single flight.

This vehicle, Relativity Space Terran 1, launched on its first test flight on March 22. The rocket performed well initially, surviving Max-Q, the portion of flight during which structural loads are highest on a vehicle. But something went wrong shortly after the two stages of Terran 1 separated, and the rocket failed to reach orbit.
