Astra is a publicly-traded American aerospace company based in Alameda, California, USA. The company offers dedicated launch services for payloads up to 500kg to low Earth orbit.
Astra's current launch vehicle, Rocket 3, is its first commercial launch vehicle (the earlier Rocket 1 and Rocket 2 were test vehicles). Future plans include Rocket 4 (an upgraded version of Rocket 3) and Rocket 5 (for point-to-point transport between locations on Earth).
Astra is also developing a satellite bus which it hopes to put into service in the early 2020s.
