Reliable RocketLab

I would have thought that RocketLab have demonstrated a commendable commitment to reliability by postponing their launch until they can be even more sure of mission success. Their reliability may come at the cost of schedule, but a slip to the right on timetable is far preferable to an unexpected disassembly of flight hardware.

The Ariane 5 launch mentioned later in the story was postponed several times before it's eventual, successful, launch, but, correctly, no comment was made about its reliability.
