Cosmic Girl

Boeing 747 aircraft operated by Stratolaunch

Cosmic Girl is a Boeing 747-400 aircraft.

Cosmic Girl is a mother ship that can carry at least one LauncherOne launch vehicles. (The picture shows a LauncherOne under the left wing of the mother ship - between the fuselage and a jet engine.)

It was bought by Virgin Galactic in 2015.

When a LauncherOne launches from Cosmic Girl at high altitude, then that rocket can put a small satellite up to 300 kg (660 lb) (see satellite) payload into orbit.
