Eight months after the first demonstration flight of its air-launched rocket system failed, Richard Branson’s Virgin Orbit successfully launched 10 satellites to orbit. The company used its LauncherOne rocket to deploy 10 tiny satellites in orbit for NASA. "In both a literal and figurative sense, this is miles beyond how far we reached in our first Launch Demo," the company said in its statement.
