Actually, I think that is the OLD life. I believe Scaled was developing the airplane under contract (hence the term "SOW"--statement of work). Last I heard, Stratolaunch itself is up for sale.

IOW, "we've done as much as we're ever going to get paid for (build it and one whole flight) and are kicking this white elephant out. Leave us alone, as we no longer have anything to do with it".

They could rent it out as portable shade in the desert.
Kickstarter to buy it for the ultimate burning man accomodations venue? :D the playa should be big enough to land it eh?

Has it already flown once? If it did, I must have missed that.

Strap a water tank underneath and put out both of the big California wildfires burning right now with one pass.
