Mojave Desert — Today, Stratolaunch announced that they will add to their aircraft, further cementing it as the largest aircraft ever built. In todays statement, Dim Tod, an aircraft designer, said
" In order to keep our business model sustainable, we need to be able to launch larger rockets"
This comes as a surprise as many, with critics of the plan saying "there's no way it will get off the ground". Currently this design is under testing at their space center in the Mojave, and will be integrated on to their aircraft by the end of this year.
