Rocket start from the wing of a Boeing 747

"We will know more, if our engineers have evaluated the mountain of data we collected today." During the Test, no one had been injured. The carrier aircraft, a Boeing 747 named Cosmic Girl, be sure to the air and space port in Mojave, in the U.S. state of California landed. You've made a big step forward.

According to the technology blog "The Verge", this was the first attempt to send a rocket into orbit, after six years of development time. The so-called LauncherOne would be able to carry small to medium payloads that correspond to about the size of washing machines, into space. The rocket will not start upright from the ground, but under the wing of the Boeing 747, which brings the rocket to an altitude of around 10,600 metres. There, the airplane pulls up then, from the rocket to the sky, and then LauncherOne to start. The main engine is to bring ignite and the rocket into orbit.

Virgin Orbit is connected with Branson's space tourism company Virgin Galactic. This company has the goal, to flights into space for its clients. Virgin Galactic is in a tough competition with rivals such as Blue Origin, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, or SpaceX, Tesla boss Elon Musk, who also want to carry tourists into space.
