In addition to Allen's death, Stratolaunch eventually gave up building a series of rockets and spacecrafts with which it meant to play a significant role in the growing market for satellite launches and other space artifacts. "The aircraft is a remarkable engineering achievement and we congratulate everyone involved", said the late billionaire's sister Jody Allen, who is also the chair of his philanthropic trust.
