WORLD’S BIGGEST AIRPLANE IS BEING BUILT
Microsoft’s co-founder Paul Allen is working on the world’s biggest airplane. The airplane has 28 wheels and they had to apply for special permit for construction work.
The twin-fuselage behemoth is called Stratolaunch's andas wide as a football field. It has737 engines and has 60 miles of wiring coursing through it. The airplane weighs 1.3 million pounds when it is fully loaded and.
The purpose of the airplane is to carry and drop a rocket to an altitude of 35,000.
Allen is trying to enable the access to low-Earth orbit. Once tripping around the earth becomes available and yet affordable, such will enable other scientists and entrepreneurs to think more about the space.
Allen believes that thirty years back, people got access to computers and thus increased human potential. Twenty years back people got access to internet and smartphones and thus crossed the boundary of limited understanding of business and geography. And now it is time for people to get access to the orbitand thus do the revolution as the utility of the airplane is unlimited.
However, it is not clear yet when the airplane is going to fly and whose rockets it’s going to carry to the space.
