SKY7, a helicopter from ABC7 News, has spotted a rocket at Alameda Naval Air Station. The rocket allegedly belongs to a stealthy aerospace research and development firm, which doesn’t even have a name yet.
ABC7 News obtained a lease application filed with the city of Alameda from local officials. According to the document, the rocket is named Astra. The received document reportedly contains a scale diagram showing the rocket’s diminutive size and capacity compared to the SpaceX Falcon Heavy. The Astra rocket is designed to carry only 100 kg while the SpaceX Falcon Heavy – 56,000 kg. ABC7 News also claimed that the company is going to turn Alameda Naval Air Station into a space technology hub.
