BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. — A California rocket company announced Tuesday that it plans to build and test rockets at a NASA facility in Mississippi, part of its bid to use three-dimensional metal printing to reduce the complexity of rocket building.
Los Angeles-based Relativity said that it would invest $59 million, with a plan to increase to 200 workers from 90 current employees.
The company will lease space from NASA at Stennis Space Center on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The facility has long hosted rocket tests.
