Who we are

 

 Virgin Galactic, www.VirginGalactic.com (SPCE:NYSE), 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 us 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
