How much are space stocks worth? ...then a price-to-sales ratio of two to four might possibly be a fair price to pay for a profitable space stock. In a matter of days, Virgin Orbit's never-very-likely sale to Texas-based investor Matthew Brown fell apart.
Virgin Orbit is history -- and won't be rising from the ashes ever again. Virgin Orbit, Sir Richard Branson's airplane-assisted satellite-launching venture -- as distinguished from Virgin Galactic (NYSE: SPCE), which launches human tourists to space -- had a good run, launching six rockets in the general direction of space over the past three years. Burning through cash at a rate of more than $230 million a year, and in need of more cash -- and quickly -- Virgin Orbit's second-out-of-six-attempts launch failure came at a bad time for the company.
The company is returning to space. Investors are still struggling to see how it will do so profitably.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M (AP) — Virgin Galactic completed what is expected to be its final test flight Thursday before taking paying customers on brief trips to space, marking what the space tourism company described as a “fantastic achievement” in what has been a long road to commercial operations.

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., May 25, 2023--Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SPCE) today successfully completed its Unity 25 mission to space. Mission specialists Jamila Gilbert, Christopher Huie and Luke Mays became the newest Virgin Galactic Astronauts as they evaluated the end-to-end astronaut training and spaceflight experience.
At its current burn rate, Virgin Galactic may soon need to sell 10% of its share count every quarter, just to stay solvent.
Virgin Galactic, the space tourism firm founded by Richard Branson, is set to launch its first spaceflight mission in nearly two years on Thursday, a final planned test flight with a crew of six before it kickstarts its long-awaited commercial service. The company's Unity 25 mission from Spaceport America, New Mexico, comes 22 months after billionaire Branson and other Virgin Galactic employees rode to the edge of space aboard the company's centerpiece SpaceShipTwo spaceplane. But a safety probe into Branson's flight by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration hampered the company's near-term plans, as did a lengthy spacecraft upgrade period that lasted longer than Virgin Galactic originally anticipated.
