Virgin Galactic is on track to become the world’s first privately funded commercial space line. We are dedicated to becoming a world leader in sub-orbital commercial space tourism. Virgin Galactic generates lift, physically and emotionally, by forming around our Future Astronauts. We do this by equipping, propelling and empowering those people we travel with. We are there at each and every step, from the second we meet, to the moment the harness is released and through the experiences beyond. We help enable the Future Astronauts to fulfil the promise of the moment on their own, but always be safe in the knowledge that we are right by their sides.
