Who we are

Virgin Galactic www.VirginGalactic.com (SPCE:NYSE) Virgin Galactic recognizes that the answers to many of the challenges we face in sustaining life on our beautiful but fragile planet, lie in making better use of space.

Sending people to space has not only expanded our understanding of science, but taught us amazing things about human ingenuity, physiology and psychology.

From space, we are able to look with a new perspective both outward and back. From space, the borders that are fought over on Earth are arbitrary lines. From space it is clear that there is much more that unites than divides us.

 

“We are at the vanguard of a new industry determined to pioneer twenty-first century spacecraft, which will open space to everybody — and change the world for good.”  Sir Richard Branson, Founder, Virgin Galactic

Your Mission

Virgin Galactic recognises that the answers to many of the challenges we face in sustaining life on our beautiful but fragile planet, lie in making better use of space. Sending people to space has not only expanded our understanding of science, but taught us amazing things about human ingenuity, physiology and psychology. From space, we are able to look with a new perspective both outward and back. From space, the borders that are fought over on Earth are arbitrary lines. From space, it is clear that there is much more that unites us than divides us.

 

Virgin Galactic is rapidly approaching the start of commercial spaceflight operations. As a company we have ambitious plans for our flight operations and fleet expansion. We are laser-focused on our future growth, as well delivering our near-term objectives.

 

The Astronaut Office plays a key role on both fronts, serving the unique, global community of customers we call Future Astronauts, all who have paid significant deposits up-front to travel to space with Virgin Galactic. It is responsible for engaging and informing those customers, engendering and building a strong sense of community, while maintaining excitement in the project. It is also responsible for ensuring customers are prepared for their flights before arriving at Spaceport America for training, and to optimise the experience after they fly too. In some ways, the team is responsible for managing the most exclusive club in the world!
