Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Virgin Galactic Wins NASA Contract To Launch More Than A Dozen Satellites On LauncherOne | Virgin Galactic

We’re designing LauncherOne to help researchers and innovators get their satellites into space affordably, responsively, and reliably, because we know that small satellites can successfully complete a staggering array of different types of mission. That’s why we’re excited and proud to announce today that NASA has purchased a flight on LauncherOne through its Venture Class Launch Services program. This flight—slated to happen just before the start of our routine commercial operations of LauncherOne—will carry 200 kilograms of payload into space, launching more than a dozen NASA-selected satellites into orbit.
