The World's Largest Plane is Designed to put Satellites Into Orbit

The co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen, has used his billions for a lot of forward looking and cool projects.  This is just one of them.
It seems that rockets are outdated.  You know, they are expensive, burn a lot of fuel, etc.  But this plane, the Stratolaunch Aircraft is supposed to be better… much better than rockets for putting things into outer space.
The plane has 6 engines and 28 wheels.
Personally this is one of the coolest things I have ever seen, and I’m only seeing it in pictures.  It should save lots of money and be a lot better as more and more of our tech becomes space based.
If you’d like to read all the news about this, take a look at the Wired.com website.
