In spaceflight, a launch vehicle is a rocket used to carry a payload from Earth’s surface into outer space. A launch system includes the launch vehicle, the launch pad, and other infrastructure. Although a carrier rocket’s payload is often an artificial satellite placed into orbit, some spaceflights, such as sounding rockets, are sub-orbital, while others enable spacecraft to escape Earth orbit entirely.
