Peter Beck Gets Hit By I-Beam During Neutron Presentation

Long Beach, CA – Yesterday's Neutron update from Rocket Lab's CEO Peter Beck saw space enthusiasts left fascinated, and rightly so. Rocket Lab's upcoming Neutron rocket looks to be a rocket of the future with its new innovations. The non-detachable fairings are a big step towards cost reduction, and the load point for the second stage and payload is a clever way to reduce failure points. The rocket also looks to be made out of Rocket Lab's special carbon fiber. However, not everything went to plan in the presentation.

Right after the carbon fiber demonstration, Peter Beck moved to inspect the carbon fiber panel. However, the mechanism holding the I-beam back failed to deploy, and it came crashing into Beck. Fortunately, Beck was uninjured because it turns out the I-beam was actually made out of Rocket Lab's special carbon fiber.

"Ow, that kinda hurts. Um... I don't think anything's...*inspecting his suit* ripped or anything. We'll need to...uh... work with our team about that. The beam's made out of carbon fiber fortunately. Anyways, on with the update."

Peter Beck then continued the presentation as though nothing had happened.
