JUNIOR ASTRONAUT STORE
Incredibly, we are offering you the chance to have your VERY OWN satellite for just £135. For this unbelievable price, you get ALL of the following:
A personalised Nanonaut, complete with your name laser etched onto it.
A satellite that will stay in orbit for a long, long time – up to 25 years!
Payload space on the Virgin Orbit LauncherOne rocket to take your Nanonaut into orbit.
A film of the rocket launch showing your Nanonaut blasting off onboard LauncherOne.
A powerful tracking app so you can follow your satellite’s progress as it orbits Earth.
Enrolment on our Junior Astronaut programme; the perfect place for future astronauts to learn about space and the people who work there.
From 2025 we wish to offer the opportunity for two of our Junior Astronaut members to go to space! This is subject to certification of commercial passenger services and agreement with Virgin Galactic. This program is developing and currently in the development phase.
Nanonauts cannot be sold for advertising or commercial purposes
The Nanonauts are attached to the adaptor plate of Virgin Orbit’s LauncherOne, they will remain on the rocket as it deorbits and will proceed to burn up on re-entry, thus leaving no trace in space.
Have you ever flown a plane - not flown in a plane; but actually piloted it?

Besides an hour of flying in one of our fleet of 50, full-size, aerobatic motor gliders, you’ll work with your instructor pilot to carry out a series of incredible experiments – like investigating micro-gravity – designed by one of the world’s leading space scientists.

ZERO GRAVITY FLIGHTS
Astronaut training includes flights that soar so steeply upwards and plummet so sharply downwards that the gravity inside the plane actually disappears!
These manoeuvres are called parabolas and you won’t just do one… or two… or even three. You’ll complete FIFTEEN parabolas and experience up to seven minutes of ZERO GRAVITY. You can join us on this unique experience for a cost of £8,000.*
