Virgin Galactic, in collaboration with Under Armour, unveiled the first exclusive spacewear system for private astronauts. The clothing consists of a base layer, a spacesuit, footwear, training suit and a Limited Edition astronaut jacket. The design of this first specific collection for private astronauts is a unique combination of comfort and functionality to ensure a unique experience.
Ana Bru, as Future Astronaut, attended the event on October 16 in New York, and could see the real outfit she will wear during her suborbital flight.
The event, of futuristic character and with both dance and indoor flight exhibition, was attended by Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Galactic, Kevin Plank, CEO and Founder of Under Armour, as well as Beth Moses, chief astronaut instructor and the first woman to fly on board a commercial spaceship.
Virgin Galactic makes Space for the second time with three new astronauts on board. VSS Unity flew higher and faster than ever before, reaching space for the second time in ten weeks. This was VSS Unity’s fifth supersonic powered test flight, and the world record-holding hybrid rocket motor propelled the spaceship at Mac 3.04 to an apogee of 295,007ft.
The Chief Pilot, Dave Mackay, and co-pilot, Michael “Sooch” Masucci, became commercial astronauts and Beth Moses, Virgin Galactic’s Chief Astronaut Instructor, flew as the third crew member in a first, live evaluation of cabin dynamics. She is the 571st person to fly to space and the first woman to fly on board a commercial spaceship.
Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo, VSS Unity, landed from her maiden spaceflight. Not only is this the first human spaceflight to be launched from American soil since the final Space Shuttle mission in 2011, but the very first time that a crewed vehicle built for commercial, passenger service, has reached space.
SpaceShipTwo VSS Unity safely and successfully completed her first supersonic, rocket-powered flight.
In 2007 Virgin Galactic selected BRU&BRU Exclusive Travel Designer as the only agent authorised to sell its suborbital flights in Spain and Andorra.
