Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Visiting Virgin Galactic’s LauncherOne team

LauncherOne is a two-stage launch vehicle designed by Virgin Galactic to address the growing satellite market. LauncherOne has already attracted the interest of numerous small satellite manufacturers and operators, including the OneWeb project Virgin Group has invested in, which is designed to deliver broadband services to areas of the world not currently served by terrestrial networks. NASA has also purchased a flight on LauncherOne to launch a dozen NASA selected satellites into orbit for its Venture Class Launch Services program.
