Virgin Galactic has released its first commercial for a trip to outer space

Virgin Galactic

Virgin Galactic, the space tourism company launched by Richard Branson, has released its first ever commercial.

The company’s goal is to allow civilians to travel for a very brief time into outer space.

In the new video the company imagines the future of spaceflight through its own lens.

The company has suffered from some bad press and tragedy in recent years, including the crash of its SpaceShipTwo spacecraft in 2014. That tragedy claimed the life of co-pilot Michael Alsbury and injured pilot Peter Siebold.

The company has taken steps to improve the safety of its planes over the last two years.

Virgin Galactic, which debuted its new spacecraft design in February, is pitching itself as the lowest cost satellite launcher and consumer space travel.

Here’s the first commercial for Virgin Galactic.
