Company Profile
Virgin Galactic is the world’s first commercial spaceline. We are developing vehicles to fly private astronauts, research experiments, and satellites to space—democratizing access to space for the benefit of life on Earth. The Virgin Galactic astronaut experience will include out-of-seat weightlessness and stunning views of Earth from space onboard SpaceShipTwo, our reusable spaceplane designed for us by aerospace pioneer Scaled Composites. SpaceShipTwo has been designed to carry two pilots and as many as six astronauts (or more than 1,000 pounds of experiments) to space and back on commercial flights from New Mexico’s Spaceport America, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport.

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
