We Are On A Mission ToOpen Space For Everyone

Small satellites are ushering in a new era of space capabilities — connecting us across vast distances, stimulating the global economy, and expanding the limits of human knowledge. This rapidly growing industry requires a launch service that is as agile and affordable as the satellites themselves. But until now, there hasn’t been one.

Enter Virgin Orbit’s LauncherOne system: a rocket that combines proven technology with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques to propel human curiosity to new heights.

Dedicated Services

For too long, launchers have treated small satellite customers like second-class citizens. With Virgin Orbit, you’ll get first-class service at a fair cost so you can take full control of your satellite’s journey to space.

Flexible Launch

The beauty of our mobile launch pad is that we can fly wherever you need, whenever you need to go. Even hitting 20 flights per year isn't enough for us — we'll be pushing to do even more.

Luxurious customer service. Disruptive affordability. Honest transparency. Everything you love about the Virgin brand — now in orbit!
