The company Virgin Galactic announced the desire to hold at the end of this month, an online event, which will register its first cabin tourist spaceplane VSS Unity in all details. It seems that the mentioned statement has caused excitement among investors. The market responded sluggishly.
After the second successful test launch of the spaceship VSS Unity, held at the end of last June, the share price of Virgin Galactic at the new York stock exchange rose for a few days to $17,39 apiece. But then she began to show a negative trend. As of July 2, the value of one share is $16.25 in. At the close of today’s trading price decreased by 2.7 %.
It seems that investors are not impressed with the achievements of Virgin Galactic. But a few days before the second test run the tourist vehicle company also signed a cooperation agreement with the American aerospace Agency NASA. For him, Virgin Galactic will prepare space tourists for flights to the International space station.
However, given the innovative and, to some extent, even the experimental specificity of the ideas of Virgin Galactic it is quite obvious that investors are cautiously watching the situation. Most likely, the company will be able to attract more interest shortly after making the first commercial tourism flight VSS Unity. Recall that at one time the ship can take on Board up to 6 passengers, each of which will have to pay for the ticket is $ 250,000. It is expected that the first commercial launch will take place this year.
As for the online event, Virgin Galactic is going July 28 to show the cockpit of the spaceship on his page on the YouTube platform. Kickoff is scheduled for 20:00 Moscow time.
