Stratolaunch is preparing for its first flight of its big bird this summer. They have been working on taxi tests as of February and will be doing at
least three more. They want to work up to higher speeds before doing their first flight. I presume after that they will conduct a flight program to
work out the kinks in the monster and then begin doing...whatever it is they will do.
They have stated they will have a wide range of services offered by the company. The one they touted from the beginning was launch from a rocket on
the monster. Most recently there has been talk of a potential space plane dubbed 'Black Ice.'
