Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the July 9th issue of Aerotech News and Review! Virgin Orbit has notched another successful satellite launch operation, confirming successful deployment into orbit of 7 customer satellites onboard its LauncherOne rocket, June 30. The mission, dubbed Tubular Bells: Part One, took off from Mojave Air and Space Port and flew out to a launch site over the Pacific Ocean. We hope this is a harbinger of success for Virgin Group’s extended operations, as Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo Unity prepares for a fully crewed space flight as early as July 11th.
