First test launch of Virgin Orbit rocket fails
LOS ANGELES: The first test launch of a rocket that is released from a jumbo jet at 35,000 feet and then propels itself into orbit to deploy a satellite failed on Monday, the Virgin Orbit company said.
"The mission terminated shortly into the flight. Cosmic Girl and our flight crew are safe and returning to base," Virgin Orbit's Twitter account reported as the test was underway off the coast of California.
The plane released the rocket cleanly, but the latter developed trouble of unknown origin after igniting its first-stage engine, the company said.
It is sad that the test launch has failed, better luck next time.
Send Indian RAGADeChootia along with cosmic girl next time, he will make sure the baby is delivered in orbit without fail.
Keep it up!!! Failure is the pillars of success
