Virgin Orbit lands in Times Square NYC to ring NASDAQ bell

NEW YORK — Another kind of countdown hit New York City’s Times Square Friday (Jan. 7) as a commercial spaceflight company celebrated joining the NASDAQ stock exchange.

Virgin Orbit, the satellite-launching company founded by Richard Branson, brought one of its 70-foot-long (21 meters) rocket, LauncherOne, to Times Square amid New York City’s first sizeable snow of the year. Company leaders rang the opening bell of the NASDAQ exchange located nearby, commemorating that Virgin Orbit became publicly traded on the exchange on Dec. 30.
