Stratolaunch announces new launch vehicles and reusable space plane

It’s now working on a pair of its own rocket-powered launch vehicles, and is in the early phases of creating a reusable, crew-capable space plane. The company’s main claim to fame so far is the unnamed aircraft that will be doing the heavy lifting. Its 385-foot wingspan is the world’s largest — but it’s necessary to provide room in the middle for its intended launch vehicle cargo. More interesting is the Space Plane, which like the military’s X-37B is a reusable spacecraft meant for taking things to space and bringing them back. But it wouldn’t be announced alongside real vehicles if the team wasn’t serious about it.
