Hello, fans and friends — thanks for checking out the Jan. 21st issue of Aerotech News and Review! Aerospace Valley “bird watchers” got a treat on Jan. 13, as Virgin Orbit’s Cosmic Girl took to the skies over Mojave Air and Space Port. Cosmic Girl successfully deployed into orbit all seven customer satellites onboard its LauncherOne rocket, during the ‘Above the Clouds’ mission. “It’s a thrill for our team that this mission… reached an orbit that no one had ever reached from the West Coast before… which confirms the team’s ability to provide top tier launch service anywhere, anytime,” said Virgin Orbit CEO Dan Hart.
