Microsoft Cofounder Roll out Huge Rocket Launching Plane
« on: June 02, 2017, 12:19:26 AM »

Microsoft cofounder Paul Allenís entry into the commercial space race has been revealed.

Allen posted a picture of a plane nicknamed the ďRocĒ on Twitter, showing an extremely unusual and enormous plane that he hopes will eventually launch rockets into space.

The Roc has six engines, two fuselages, 28 wheels and is built by Allenís company Stratolaunch Systems.

The plane has a wingspan of more than 117 meters, the longest ever built, and weighs more than 227,000 kilograms. To put the wingspan into perspective, it is longer than an official soccer pitch, which measure between 100 and 110 meters.
