Virgin Orbit is on a mission to make space more accessible through AirLaunch — a transformative new launch system capable of launching a rocket from anywhere on Earth.
Supercluster was asked to help explain what sets AirLaunch apart. We created a short film that explains the history and future of AirLaunch, and the impact this technology will have on the rapidly expanding New Space economy.
Using a mix of hand-drawn cel animation, stop motion, and archival footage, we make the case that 35,000 feet in the air might just be the best place to launch a rocket.
