Who we Are

Solving big problems requires seeing the big picture. But for many of today’s innovators, a truly global point of view is out of reach since access to space has long been limited.

Until now.

Paul G. Allen founded Stratolaunch to get game-changing ideas off the ground by making space launch more reliable, affordable and accessible than ever before. From uncovering better climate data to protecting endangered species to solving humanitarian challenges, the potential benefits of data collected from satellites are world-altering.

It’s these possibilities that drove us to develop the world’s largest plane, which acts as a launch pad in the sky, bypassing many of the hazards that cause ground-launch delays here on Earth. From our base of operations at Mojave Air & Space Port, we’re creating a world where booking a satellite launch is as routine and convenient as booking a plane ticket. So more people — across more industries — can see their big ideas take flight.

With Stratolaunch, the most exciting thing about space is how amazingly close it is.
