Stratolaunch reveals its 1st hypersonic design and style for large-altitude flights

A upcoming flight of Roc will release TA-, which is unpowered, to evaluate Roc’s programs. (The news comes just weeks after Stratolaunch’s Might 4 flight to check out out Roc’s landing gear, amongst other objects.)
