Sky and Space Global has taken out a launch contract with start-up air launch operator Virgin Galactic for four launches on its LauncherOne vehicle, starting in 2018. The Launcher One, which is carried into the sky before an air-drop launch from a converted Boeing 747, will carry satellites into orbit as part of Sky and Space Global’s small satellite constellation. LauncherOne is to be test-flown next year. Virgin Galactic has already signed similar launch contracts with NASA and OneWeb.
