Virgin Orbit yang dimiliki miliuner Inggris, Richard Branson, ini mengirimkan sembilan satelit ke orbit bawah bumi.

Sayangnya satelit pertama yang diluncurkan dari Inggris itu gagal mencapai orbit. Virgin Orbit melaporkan ada 'anomali' yang mencegah roket mereka sampai ke orbit.

Kendati demikian, peluncuran ini menandakan Inggris bisa masuk ke dunia baru yang eksklusif yaitu sembilan negara yang dapat mengirim pesawat ke orbit Bumi.
