Virgin Orbit tested LauncherOne from Boeing 747 wing

Cosmic Girl. The brilliant Virgin Orbit team have integrated our LauncherOne rocket with Cosmic Girl, our modified 747, for the very first time. These photos show the size of the rocket we attached to our 747. It will carry LauncherOne to more than 30,000 feet before the rocket engages its thrusters and flies into orbit early next year – travelling at 17,500mph, dropping off satellites and connecting the world.
