For the first time, Virgin Galactic will share a global livestream of the spaceflight. We invite you to participate virtually in the Unity 22 test flight and see first-hand the extraordinary experience Virgin Galactic is creating for future astronauts


Dear broadcaster,

Last week Virgin Galactic announced that the flight window for the next rocket-powered test flight of its SpaceShipTwo VSS Unity opens on Sunday, July 11.

The “Unity 22” mission will be the twenty-second flight test for VSS Unity and the Company’s fourth crewed spaceflight. It will also be the first to carry a full crew of two pilots and four mission specialists in the cabin, including the Company’s founder, Sir Richard Branson, who will be testing the private astronaut experience.

For the first time, Virgin Galactic will share a global livestream of the spaceflight. We invite you to participate virtually in the Unity 22 test flight and see first-hand the extraordinary experience Virgin Galactic is creating for future astronauts.

Please find below details of how to access the broadcast quality live stream of b-roll content releases.
