Virgin Galactic boldly goes into small satellites, telling future astronauts ‘you have to wait’

AC Charania, director of strategy and business development at Virgin Galactic, claims “We are the Uber of small launch.”

“You can’t tell the big rocket where to go and you can’t tell it when to go,” says Charania. “You essentially have to get on a bus.

“With Uber, you go when you want to go, you pick the service you want – UberX or UberXL, it goes exactly where you want and it’s an easy transaction. That’s essentially the model for us.”
