 Abstract
Present paper introduces the recent advances in space launch vehicle technologies. A brief survey is given for the space development programs in civil sector with their business model and key technologies. Advances in key technologies were reviewed in detail with more emphasis on the electric pump cycle engine for low cost high performance small launch vehicle, Electron, under development by Rocketlab Ltd., since their contributions would give good lessons for rocket scientists.
