Vulcan Aerospace Corporation
Vulcan Inc. is an investment and project management company founded in 1986 by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, to manage his investments. The company is headquartered in Seattle. Inspired by the country’s original space heroes like John Glenn and Alan Shepard, Paul Allen grew up hoping to one day be an astronaut himself. That early fascination in this new frontier led to his significant investments in the future of space travel later in life. Stratolaunch Systems, Allen’s most recent space venture, is a unique air-launch-to-orbit flight system designed to continue the United States’ legacy of progress in space travel. Its 13,500-pound carrying capacity is designed to take everything from satellites to supplies into low-Earth orbit, with the possibility of carrying people in the future. With initial test flights scheduled for 2017, Stratolaunch is on track to become the first and only craft able to truly continue NASA’s mission of science and exploration. Learn more at
