To all the small satellite makers and operators out there in the world, we wanted to give you a heads up that booking a mission on LauncherOne just got a whole lot easier!

Our air-launch system is revolutionary and unlocks brand new markets (both by geography and by mission type). And it's *still* one of the cheapest launch development programs in history.

We've also already developed a new high-rate rocket production line and a 747 derivative aircraft. History, including recent history, has shown that building out production capabilities and setting up multiple launch sites are bigger $$ projects than initial rocket development.

We don't comment on investment numbers, but a few thoughts. We’ve done a ton as a very small aerospace company. We’re not developing a traditional small ground-lit rocket—we’re doing something much more and bringing a new capability.
