Spain will go one step further in its race to lead the European aerospace sector during the first quarter of 2023 with the launch of its first rocket to low Earth orbit. The Miura 1, as this rocket has been named, will be launched from the the Arenosillo base (Huelva).

Miura 1 has been entirely developed by a Spanish company headquartered in Elche (Alicante).

Its launch to orbit will imply the first step toward the final goal of launching the Miura 5 rocket from the European base in French Guiana, which will send private company smallsats to space in a single commercial flight.

From a technical standpoint, Miura 1 is a suborbital launch vehicle designed with a capacity to take small payloads of up to 100 kilograms to space.

Its height is 12 meters, and it is expected to reach 153 kilometers after its launch.
