Find out How we launch into space
Unlike traditional vertical launch locations, Spaceport Cornwall is utilising an existing airport runway and airport facilities to launch to space. Carrier launch systems, like Virgin Orbit’s modified Boeing 747 Cosmic Girl, will take off at the end of the runway, fly up to altitude and deploy their rocket mid-air. The carrier aircraft will return to land, while the rocket will take its satellite payloads into Low Earth Orbit.
