With the success of three commercial spaceflights–and one more due in early October–Virgin Galactic is easing into a long-awaited routine of taking paying customers to the edge of space aboard the VSS Unity suborbital spaceplane. To discuss the progress made by Virgin Galactic this year, and look ahead at what is in store for the company, Mike Moses will join in a virtual fireside chat with Dr. George Nield, GSA Chairman for a frank, open, and visionary discussion. Participants joining the meeting will have an opportunity to post questions directly to Mr. Moses. This Global Spaceport Alliance webinar will be a rare opportunity to connect with one of the leaders of the new era of human spaceflight.
