From Virgin Galactic

We are a part of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, and with our sister companies – The Spaceship Company and Virgin Orbit – we are developing and operating a new generation of space vehicles to open space for everyone.

We are comprised of hundreds of dedicated and passionate professionals, united in creating the world’s first commercial spaceline. Our mission – to be the spaceline for Earth – means we focus on using space for good, while delivering an unparalleled customer experience.

Through our work, we believe we can help inspire future generations and make it possible to see our beautiful home planet from a new perspective.

We are proud to be part of the incredible spaceflight story. It is thousands of years in the making, and driven by the deeply human need to explore our universe, to innovate and to create a better future for our society and our planet.

Our world class team – comprising of engineers, technicians, mission controllers and many more wonderful professionals – continues to push the boundaries of technology and exploration. Our dedication to finding the best people for Virgin Galactic has resulted in our unique and inspiring sense of purpose, and a strong culture of safety and achievement.

Our Vehicles

These are the vehicles that will take you to space.

Virgin Galactic operates the reusable SpaceShipTwo spaceflight system – consisting of WhiteKnightTwo, a custom-built, carrier aircraft, and SpaceShipTwo, the world’s first passenger carrying spaceship to be built by a private company and operated in commercial service.

WhiteKnightTwo

WhiteKnightTwo is a custom-built, four-engine, dual-fuselage jet aircraft, designed to carry SpaceShipTwo up to an altitude of ~50,000 feet.

The concept of air-launching space vehicles is not new, but is ideally suited to commercial spaceflight for reasons of safety, passenger experience and energy efficiency.

The first WhiteKnightTwo, VMS Eve, was rolled-out in 2008 and has completed an extensive test flight program. VMS Eve is the largest all composite aviation vehicle in service and has a unique heavy payload, high altitude capability. The catamaran design provides a large and easily accessible payload area and facilitates clean separation when the spaceship is released. The twin cabins come from the same mould as the spaceship. This enables efficient manufacture but also provides a potential training platform for both spaceship pilots and passengers.

Work With Us

Opening space to change the world for good, is an ambitious mission which will only be achieved by an exceptionally dedicated and skilful team.
