Virgin Galactic is developing and operating a new generation of space vehicles to open space for everyone. Their mission is to become the spaceline for Earth---using space for good and delivering an unparalleled customer experience. Sending people to space has not only expanded our understanding of science, but taught us amazing things about human ingenuity, physiology and psychology. Millions of people would love to experience space, including scientists that would love to reap the benefits of space-based research, but fewer than 600 people have had the first-hand experience. It was this limited access to space that inspired the creation of Virgin Galactic.
Virgin Galactic is proud to partner with the Google Science Fair to help inspire future generations to give in to the deeply human need to explore, innovate and create. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is at the center of this innovation, and the Google Science Fair is a wonderful way to showcase the inspiring and thoughtful work young people contribute to these areas.
