New Delta rockets coming

Share |

Virgin Galactic made 5 space flights between June and November 2023. The flights were made with the VSS Unity rocket, which was built 2016. Now there will be a short break in the flights and they are scheduled to continue in January. VSS Unity can make a flight in a month and take four passengers into space at once. Currently, Galactic 06 flight in January and Galactic 07 flight in April 2024 are planned. That means in 2024, about 30-40 people would get into space if the flights continue as in 2023. This pace is too slow. There are probably 800 ticket buyers in the queue, so at this rate it would take almost 20 years to clear the queue.


That's why Virgin Galactica has been planning a new Delta-class rocket for a few years now. These rockets are improved versions of previous rockets. Deltas can be flown once a week and they take six passengers into space at once. Construction of the Deltas has started in 2023 and they are expected to fly into space in 2025. So my rocket will be a Delta-class rocket. It's a little early to say when it's my turn to fly into space. It could be 2026 and the flight number should be Galactic 35.
