The way is open for a new way of placing small satellites in orbit. Britain's Richard Branson's Virgin Orbit successfully launched a rocket into space from the wing of a Boeing 747 for the first time on Sunday. It was Virgin Orbit's second attempt after a test failed in May 2020.

“LauncherOne has reached orbit! Everyone on the team who is not on mission control right now has gone nuts, ”the company wrote at 9:49 pm KST. The plane took off from Mojave Air and Space Port, in the desert north of Los Angeles (California, United States) and fired its rocket over the Pacific.

Today's sequence of events for # LaunchDemo2 went exactly to plan, from safe execution of our ground ops all the way through successful full duration burns on both engines. To say we're thrilled would be a massive understatement, but 240 characters couldn't do it justice anyway. pic.twitter.com/ZKpoi7hkGN

It remains to be seen how Varady will be replaced, as the Roadrunners plan to participate in the coming AHL season starting next month.

Founded by billionaire Richard Branson in 2012, Virgin Orbit wants to offer a fast and adaptable space launch service for small satellites weighing between 300 kg and 500 kg, a growing market. The 21-meter Virgin Orbit rocket, dubbed LauncherOne, does not take off vertically, but is mounted under the wing of a modified Boeing 747 called "Cosmic Girl".

At the correct altitude, the plane releases the rocket

Once the correct altitude has been reached, the plane releases the rocket, which starts its own engine to take the direction of space and place its cargo in orbit. The company uploaded two photos taken from the rocket once it arrived in space.

Launching a rocket from a plane is simpler than vertical takeoff because theoretically a simple airstrip is enough, instead of an expensive space launch pad.

Richard Branson has also created another space company, Virgin Galactic, which aims to send tourists into space to experience weightlessness 80 km from the surface of the Earth.

'Night Stalker': How Dianne Feinstein Jeopardized the Search for Serial Killer Richard Ramirez .
In Netflix's "Night Stalker" docuseries, investigators try to find and apprehend Richard Ramirez, a serial killer who terrorized the L.A. streets in the 80s.

Ramirez, first known as the "Walk-In Killer," invaded homes, murdering and sexually assaulting the residents, from June 1984 to August 1985. He used a wide variety of weapons and would leave behind satanic symbols.
