…The purpose of the Stratolaunch is to provide a low-cost way of launching commercial satellites. It uses engines, fuel systems, hydraulics, avionics, landing gear and cockpits from two recycled Boeing 747s and has a wingspan of 117 metres (385 feet) which is 47 metres more than an Airbus A380. It will carry rockets weighing more than 200 tonnes under its centre wing section and when it reaches an altitude around 35,000 feet (10,668 metres), the rockets will be launched.
