В начале 2019 года компания Stratolaunch Systems отказалась от ряда своих проектов из-за смерти одного из ее основателей Пола Аллена. При этом она продолжила работу над одним из самых ее масштабных проектов — огромным самолетом-носителем для вывода ракет на околоземную орбиту. Еще тогда мы писали, что он уже практически готов к своему полету, и это наконец-то случилось — 13 апреля летательный аппарат взмыл в небо и доказал свою работоспособность и надежность.

#видео | Самый большой самолет в мире совершил свой первый полет

Ранее самолет-носитель совершал только скоростные «пробежки» по взлетно-посадочной полосе, достигая скорости отрыва шасси от земли. Теперь же он успешно совершил полноценный полет, стартовав с аэродрома в пустыне Мохаве. Места для взлета действительно требовалось очень много — размах крыла аппарата достигает 117,3 метров, что делает его самым большим самолетом в мире. Масса самолета тоже огромная и достигает 226,8 тонн, а максимальная взлетная масса — 589,7 тонн.

Первый полет прошел без ракет, однако предполагается, что самолет сможет поднимать до трех ракет Pegasus XL. Возможность поднятия сразу трех штук должно заметно снизить стоимость запусков. Ранее компания занималась разработкой собственных ракет MLV и MLV Heavy для доставки грузов на орбиту, но процесс пришлось остановить из-за смерти вышеупомянутого Пола Аллена.

Подготовка к этому полету шла несколько лет подряд — компании было важно протестировать двигатель и систему развертывания. К счастью, с ними все было хорошо, и этот полет стал главным доказательством их работоспособности.

Как вам первый полет самого большого самолета? Как вы думаете, насколько он будет эффективен для вывода ракет на околоземную орбиту? Своими ответами делитесь в комментариях, или же в нашем Telegram-чате.

  38. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  39. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  41. Don’t think in which simply because it will be free would not necessarily suggest that must be good! Anytime you are searching for the numerous different choices around people, will not disregard this place.
