Galactic Unite was established in 2010 in partnership with Virgin Galactic and Virgin Unite as the global vehicle for the Virgin Galactic Future Astronaut community to channel its collective energy and resources to achieve positive change in the world.Who are we?
We are a community of like-minded ‘Future Astronauts’ (people who will be flying the world’s first commercial suborbital spaceflights on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo).
We are united by the belief that the world needs to increase opportunities for young people to learn and apply STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills and technologies to social and environmental challenges.
We want to help inspire and skill up a generation of people who will power the emerging space industry, and use their skills and expertise to solve global challenges. We aim to do this by:
- Using the energy around commercial space travel to inspire a whole new generation to get excited about STEM skills and entrepreneurialism;
- Creating and delivering innovative educational content and award-based programs around STEM and space-related activities.
