's Werelds grootste vliegtuig bijna klaar voor vlucht

Graphic News

April 25, 2018 -- Stratolaunch Systems – de onderneming voor lanceren van ruimteraketten, gesteund door mede-oprichter van Microsoft, Paul Allen – is voornemens de eerste vlucht van zijn gigantische vliegtuig binnenkort uit te voeren

The six-engine, twin-fuselage aircraft, built by California-based Scaled Composites, is designed to carry rockets up to high altitude and launch them to space from there. The alternative to conventional rocket launches could provide an affordable and efficient way to place satellites in orbit.

The aircraft has been through two taxi tests so far at the Mojave Air and Space Port in California. If three more tests go smoothly, Stratolaunch will move forward with plans to fly the giant aircraft for the first time this summer.
