Not any airfield will be able to accept new externally unique American Stratolaunch


The huge two-fuselage plane for start of space rockets passed successful tests of the Photo: Gene Blevins/Reuters the Plane with the biggest scope of a wing in the world made test flight over Mojave Desert in California. He spent 2.5 hours in air, rose by height of 5 kilometers and gathered the maximum speed of 304 kilometers per hour. The name of the Stratolaunch plane in literal translation — start from a stratosphere. Start from the plane, according to engineers, will reduce the price and will simplify process of a conclusion of satellites into an orbit as will allow to save on rocket fuel and will not depend on weather. Scope of a wing of Stratolaunch — about 117 meters that there is more than length of football field, length — 53 meters, height — about 15 meters. The maximum take-off weight — about 590 tons, the weight of the empty plane — 226 tons. The giant has two fuselages and is equipped with six engines. Landing video is live! Stratolaunch First Landing — April 13, 2019 https://t.co/pmRYeGOxQW — Jack Beyer (@thejackbeyer) on April 13, 2019. Earlier the Soviet An-225 of Mriya capable to transport up to 250 tons of freight was the biggest plane rising in air. It rose into the sky more than 20 years ago. And it is now operated in Ukraine as the cargo aircraft. Here what is told by the ex-press secretary of the Russian Aviation and Space Agency Sergey Gorbunov. Sergey Gorbunov the ex-press secretary of the Russian Aviation and Space Agency "The Stratolaunch plane is intended only for a conclusion of spacecrafts in space. That is their delivery to a certain height and from there start already into a certain orbit. Respectively, at it and characteristics under it are ground. Of course, by the sizes he outdid Mriya, but to compare these planes — who more who is less — I would not become because they have absolutely different purposes. First, this plane in Mokhava two-fuselage. The fuselages thin, so freight can be placed by it only on an external pendant and rather limited configuration. Mriya lifted 285 tons, well three fuselages, they outside. And on monolithic freight — to jam not with pieces it, and here a uniform product — lifted 181 tons. It has six engines. On Mriya there are same six engines. The car unique the appearance, and it defines it and limitation. That is not any airfield will accept it, maybe, only to Mokhava. To it it is necessary, probably, most likely, long running start, is more than at same Mriya. By the way, Mriya sat down on any airfield, on strips, including, and soil". Stratolaunch Systems was created in 2011 by one of founders of Microsoft Paul Allen who died last year because of oncology. Stratolaunch thought as the air platform for start of the carrier rockets Pegasus XL intended for a conclusion of satellites to an orbit. Antonovsky "Mriya" nearly 25 tons heavier, three meters higher also is 30 meters longer. Cruiser speed is 850 kilometers per hour. The maximum flight altitude — 11 thousand meters. The research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev tells: — On scale it примерн
