Joint Space Venture for Google and Virgin Galactic

In the aftermath of Google's announcement that it is buying Skybox Imaging, a company that makes cheap satellites that produce high resolution images, it was reported that Google is in talks to buy an equity stake in Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. Google has been purchasing companies that produce satellites and drones so it could better its services and expand its reach. According to Sky News, both companies have been negotiating for months about Google's project to launch a fleet of hundreds of satellites in low-Earth orbit in order to bring internet access to “unapproachable” areas in the world.

 

 

Virgin Galactic is Branson's latest venture, and it is part of his multi-billion Virgin empire which includes space tourism as one of its chief interests. Apart from the SpaceShipTwo rocket plane, it was also reported that Virgin Galactic is testing a vehicle named LauncherOne that is specially designed to launch small satellites with a weight of 100 kg into Earth's orbit. One of the companies that is interested in its services, among others, is Skybox Imaging. Obviously, this venture will expand both companies' exploits as they further the space frontier.
