We're going to be rocketed into space - Hangout with us Future Astronauts and find out more!

In the coming years, trips to space will be taking place for 700+ Virgin Galactic ticket holders.

Galactic Unite, a group of Virgin Galactic customers, is reaching out to classrooms via Google Hangouts to inform and inspire students.  

Sign up with this form; we hope to be able to have Hangouts with at least 10 classes before this school year is over in June:

Content is aimed for students in U.S. grades 5-12 (ages 10-18 years).  We have a valuable in-class activity, "How High Up Is Space", that can accompany the Hangout.

The exploration of space requires bright and hardworking people—and those people start out as curious kids. At Virgin Galactic, we place a high priority on engaging and inspiring the next generation of space pioneers. One way we do so is by working with the Challenger Learning Center of Las Cruces, New Mexico, supporting their first annual academic summer camp for 3rd - 8th grade students. In addition to the hands-on support, question and answer sessions, and visits from our hardworking colleagues, a grant from our #GalacticUnite program is supporting full and partial scholarships for students from low-economic households to attend this summer camp. Space should be a diverse and inclusive place—and learning experiences like these summer camps are an important step to making that goal a reality. #stemeducation

After setting a goal of reaching every sixth grade student in Las Cruces Public Schools, Virgin Galactic Future Astronaut Ron Rosano and our team in New Mexico did just that!

So far #galacticunite hosted over 90 webcasts with 170 Classrooms, reaching 4,700 students all over the world out of which 2,000 are from schools that neighbor our future home, Spaceport America in New Mexico


To travel to space is the stuff of childhood dreams and better access to space is key to solving many of our planet’s greatest challenges. Through Generation Galactic, Galactic Unite’s Outreach Program, we strive to provide inspiration and practical support to young people to encourage them to pursue a STEM-based education and ensure that future...

Supporting STEM education is pretty awesome but meeting the amazing young talent of today is way cooler!

A few weeks back we were excited to welcome the Google Science Fair 2015 winner of the Virgin Galactic Pioneer Award, Pranav Sivakumar, to the unveiling of our new Virgin Galactic spaceship, VSS Unity. What a hugely talented young man he is.

Hear about his day here & be sure to enter this year's competition!

Story
Tagline
Inspiring the next generation to solve global challenges through science and technology
Introduction
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.

Our Vision
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.
