Do Virgin Galactic's astronauts believe in UFOs?

There’s many different factors to consider when heading into space, not least the thought of coming into contact with a UFO. Before they set off into the great unknown, we thought it best to check with Virgin Galactic’s future astronauts exactly where they stood on the matter.
We also decided to pick the astronaut’s brains on the idea of the first moonlanding, a particularly poignant question given the recent passing of Neil Armstrong.
Following Armstrong’s death Virgin Galactic had some words to say on the much-respected astronaut: “We join the world in mourning the passing of Neil Armstrong. He will be remembered as a hero, an explorer, and an educator. His legacy lives on in generations of students, and in the work of all those who strive to extend humanity's knowledge outward into the unknown.”
Why not also take a look at our astronauts:
- Trying to name all the planets
- Explaining why they want to go to space
- Naming their favourite space film
- Deciding who they would take into space
- Deciding if they’re scared of space
