George Whitesides, CEO and president of Virgin Galactic has said Mubadala Development Co could team up with Richard Branson’s commercial space flight company, Gulf News has reported. Asked if Mubadala could supply parts or build any part of Virgin Galactic’s commercial spacecraft fleet, Whitesides said: “We’ve had good conversations with Mubadala and other stakeholders in the UAE and we will see where those conversations go.” Virgin Galactic is set to launch its first commercial space flight later this year with Virgin Group founder, Richard Branson, on board. Abu Dhabi’s Aabar Investments is a stakeholder in Virgin Galactic.
