Virgin Orbit satellite-launching Airplane to take off from Guam

A business owned by British billionaire Richard Branson is currently picking on Guam as a site because of the satellite services.

Virgin Orbit plans to launch satellites out of a rocket released with a Boeing 747. It’s another website in California.

The company said Thursday the U.S. Air Force will allow it to remove from the U.S. territory’s Anderson Air Force Base. Guam airport is currently looking for a Federal Aviation Administration license to sponsor launches.

Payloads will weigh around 450 kilograms (1,000 pounds) and orbit the equator at an altitude of about 500 km (310 miles).

The satellites would be for research, communications and other applications. The U.S. military is expected to be an individual customer.

Late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen started a business that is going to perform launches.
