Relativity Space shelves Terran 1 rocket, focuses on bigger, reusable Terran R

The first-ever 3D-printed rocket is being retired after a single flight. That vehicle, Relativity Space’s Terran 1, launched on its debut test flight on March 22.

But something went wrong shortly after the Terran 1’s two stages separated, and the rocket failed to reach orbit.
