Check out the world's largest aircraft.
The private sector is doing some interesting things for space exploration.
This is the stratolaunch carrier and it's the world's largest air craft if you're measuring by wingspan.
That wingspan is a massive 385 feet.
That's larger than a standard football field.
On May 31st, it actually left its hangar for fuel tests for the first time ever.
Before that date, the plane was fully constructed but supported by scaffolding.
Now, the Stratolaunch aircraft is on its 28th Wheels.
Removing the scaffolding also gave the company the weight of the aircraft.
It tips the scales at 500,000 pounds.
So, what is a Stratolaunch for?
The plane is built to go into low-Earth orbit to launch rockets into space, this Strata Launch Aircraft will be taking test flights over the coming weeks and months at the Mojave Air and Space Port.
Originally, test flights were to take place in 2015.
The first rocket launches are tentatively scheduled for 2019 The Stratolaunch is designed to carry up to three rockets.
But for its first flight, it will carry just one.
If you've never heard of Stratolaunch, it's a company that's backed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
Allen says he's been interested in space exploration since he was a child.
