Virgin Orbit can now launch satellites with an airplane

20


Richard Branson is not done with space. The first billionaire to hit the air in July 2020, he continues to scale his company Virgin Galactic. If space tourism remains its priority, it has split its assets to develop a satellite launch system.

Virgin Orbit was its property until 2021. It was then a subsidiary of the Virgin group responsible for commercial launches into orbit. Today independent, it has just obtained its flight license to be the first company to reach space from British soil.

Virgin Orbit: reach orbit in a Boeing 747

Thanks to this “historic” privilege, the company plans to send nine nanosatellites into orbit with LauncherOne. As with manned spaceflight, Virgin Orbit operates an aircraft to soar into the air before the rocket takes over.

A Boeing 747 renamed “Cosmic Girl” thus makes it possible to cross the first ten kilometers of the atmosphere. The launcher then goes into space and places the payload in orbit. With this unique method, Virgin Orbit hopes to take off from Cornwall, in the south of England.

The company has been talking about such a project for more than four years. Now that the flight authorization is in their possession, she hopes to fly sometime in January 2023.

Dan Hart, CEO of Virgin Orbit, believes that this launch will be a success for ” all “. He ensures that all necessary security measures will be taken. A few hours after Richard Branson’s journey into space in 2020, the American Federation of Aviation (FAA) opened an investigation. She revealed that several offenses were committed before, during and after the firing.

A “historic” flight to space

The 2023 flight should take place under other conditions. The plane is no longer the same nor the launcher. A first test flight also made it possible to place 10 nanosatellites in orbit. Despite the reputation of the company, Virgin Orbit wants to be reassuring. A bad press which perhaps explains the lack of information around the payload.

The details of the nine nanosatellites announced by the company have not yet been given. According to the latter, the announcement is “imminent”. During the test flight carried out in January 2021, the satellites which joined the orbit all belonged to NASA. They carried small scientific experiments carried out without the effects of gravity. The company could turn to this same client. The university sector, which pays little attention to the launch conditions, serves as an ideal client.

Virgin Orbit has not disclosed the price of a slot (a place within the payload) but this first full-scale flight should be considerably at a loss for the company. She hopes to fly several times a year to achieve a certain economic profitability.
