Virgin Orbit’s first rocket drop test has gone off without any complications. The Virgin Galactic sister company performed its first-ever drop test on July 10. In the drop test, it released a LauncherOne rocket from its Boeing 747 carrier plane, over California's Mojave desert. However, the test did not involve a real rocket. The Boeing 747 carrier just dropped its 70 foot (21 meter) rocket some 35,000 feet (about 10,670 metres) to the receiving site in California.
