Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Update from Mojave: Testing Testing 1-2-3 – Virgin Galactic

Three weeks ago, we unveiled our new spaceship, VSS Unity. As we wrote in the run-up to that unveiling, what we celebrated then was the transition to a new phase of work where, having already spent years testing its pieces and subsystems, we now test Unity as a completed vehicle.

Virgin companies are known as customer champions and our vision — to open space for the world — is consistent with our brand purpose. We were honored to celebrate the rollout milestone with our customers, investors, and families—without whom we couldn’t achieve our goals. We even named our new vehicle Unity in part because we are all in this together. So instead of doing our development work in secret, we want to continue to be open in our pursuit of that goal and share our development journey with you. In that spirit, here is what’s coming up next for our human spaceflight program.
