The company was formed in 2017 as a spin-off of Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic space tourism venture to develop and market the LauncherOne rocket, which had previously been a project under Virgin Galactic. LauncherOne is an air-launched two-stage launch vehicle capable of delivering 300 kg of payload to low Earth orbit.
