Virgin Orbit Aerospace Company was unable to attempt the first launch of the new rocket via the Boeing 747 and was launched from the coast of Southern California into the Pacific Ocean. The opening was going well when the rocket was launched into the air from the left side of the 'Cosmic Girl' jumbo jet. In a comment posted on his official Twitter account on Monday, Virgin Orbit said: `` We saw him getting off the plane very well.

However, the mission soon ended during the flight. Cosmic Girl and our crew members on the plane are safe and return to base. There was no immediate comment on what was wrong with the rocket carrying the test satellite. Will Pomirentz, vice president of special projects for Virgin Orbit, said in a talk Saturday before the test that half the tests for the launch of the first rocket fail.

The highly sophisticated jumbo jet flew to Mojave Airport and Space Port north of Los Angeles and traveled to Channel Island from where it was dropped. The rocket was to remain in the air for some time when the first of its two phases was to ignite and rapidly moved towards the South Pole. The goal was to collect data at each stage of launch.
