The company plans to launch the Galactic 01 mission throughout the period from June 27 to June 30.

Virgin Galactic shares increased by more than 40% in prolonged New York trading following the announcement to investors.

Months after a flight went wrong, the UK billionaire’s separate space company, Virgin Orbit, shut operations in May.

Three crew members from the Italian Air Force and the Italian National Research Council will be on board the first trip, according to Virgin Galactic, who stated it will be a scientific research mission. They will be doing microgravity research.

The business announced that its second commercial spaceflight would follow in early August, and that starting then, it would conduct monthly spaceflights.
