Suosnivač Microsofta Paul Allen predstavio je najveći avion na svijetu, s rasponom krila od 117 metara.

Letjelica Stratolaunch sa šest mlaznih motora osmišljena je za lansiranje satelita u orbitu. Kao prednost lansiranja satelita na raketama sa zračne platforme dok je Stratolaunch u letu, navode štednju goriva.

Avion je dizajniran tako da može nositi raketu s teretom do 250 tona, a predviđeni troškovi od 300 milijuna dolara nisu ovih dana potvrđeni, piše Guardian.

Allen, milijarder koji se obogatio preko Microsofta, pridružuje se superbogatim poduzetnicima poput Muska, Richarda Bransona i Jeffa Bezosa u traženju novih avantura u Zemljinoj orbiti, pogotovo jer se NASA okrenula privatnom sektoru za pomoć dolasku do samih granica našeg planeta.

Prvi testni letovi očekuju se unutar godinu dana, a operacije bi trebale početi 2018. godine.

The Stratolaunch  was rolled out to start fuel testing on it's tanks as Paul Allen sent out a aerial photo of it this morning. The plane is built by Scaled Composites and called the ''Roc,''  The plane has the longest wingspan of any aircraft ever built: 385 feet from tip to tip. The six-engine mothership is designed to carry rockets between its two fuselages. Once at altitude, the mega-plane will drop the launch vehicle, which will then fire its boosters and launch to space from the air..Photo by Gene Blevins/LA DailyNews/ZumaPress., Image: 334205070, License: Rights-managed, Restrictions: , Model Release: no, Credit line: Profimedia, Zuma Press - News
