Mike Melvill, the pilot of SpaceShipOne during its first spaceflight and first person to receive commercial astronaut wings, recently flew his Long-EZ into Mojave for a visit to reminisce about floating M&M’s and the view from space! . . . . . #spaceshipone   #space   #spaceflight   #commercialspace   #scaledcomposites   #designbuildtest   #mikemelvill   #commercialastronaut   #makinghistory   karmanline @mmschocolate

For Scaled, SpaceShipOne was about exploring new ideas to achieve something that had never been done before. These foam models covered with blue mylar are one way that Scaled explored ideas and tested how they worked in order to create a solution to the X-Prize challenge. Those model concepts were proven valid when they culminated in a spacecraft that flew above 100km and was able to reenter the atmosphere, using data learned from how the models handled being thrown off the airport tower! . . . . . #spaceshipone   #modelaircraft   #xprize   #designbuildtest   #scaledcomposites   #spaceflight   #commercialspace

A wet and windy one today, but these test builds are worth their weight in gold!! We were approached to take over an activation involving 4 20ft containers and 2 40ft containers, balcony and stairs. Today was a real insight for us to understand the build and how we could deliver it more efficiently over the coming summer festivals. Keep a look out for the All Out Beauty containers at a festival near you, first stop is @bsthydepark early July! 😎 #hydepark   #shippingcontainer   #balcony   #stairs   #newproject   #designbuildtest   #everydayisaschoolday   #alloutbeauty   #letscrackon

TBT to Raptor’s 17th flight – and first unmanned! During its first 16 flights, Raptor had a pilot sitting astride it ready to grab the controls as a safety measure, and its 17th flight was the first flight as a true UAV. . . . . #uav   #flying   #designbuildtest   #scaledcomposites  

When navigating the unknown, our engineers and technicians take time to test out ideas during the design and build phases.

You may have noticed that not a lot of our aircraft look like a standard aircraft – or even much like each other!

Model 351, Stratolaunch, reached a speed of 110 knots during today’s high speed taxi test. Watching our team get the vehicle to new speeds was incredibly exciting.
