Virgin Orbit's satellite launch last week has already brought the company an influx of business interest, CEO Dan Hart told me.
Why it matters: Success for small rocket launchers like Virgin Orbit is built on customers trusting them with their wares, so having a successful mission for commercial customers can go a long way toward building confidence.
Catch up quick: On Wednesday, Virgin Orbit launched seven satellites for three different customers to orbit from off the California coast.
What's happening: Since the June 30 flight, the company has seen an influx of queries from across the space industry including civil, national security, U.S. and international customers, according to Hart.
The intrigue: Another attractive element of Virgin Orbit's system for customers, Hart said, is its ability to effectively launch from anywhere.
