Relativity has a bold plan to take on SpaceX, and investors are buying it

“We’re trying to ice skate to where the puck is going,” Ellis said, adding that Relativity wants to be similarly disruptive to SpaceX, but in its own way. “What we keep hearing from customers is that they don’t want just a single launch company that is, frankly, the only quickly moving, disruptive provider.”

Powered by seven main engines, the Terran R vehicle will initially launch from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. Relativity has set a goal to launch in 2024, and Ellis said the company has signed a binding contract for multiple launches with an “anchor customer” he declined to name. Relativity has not publicly released a price for a launch.
