SpaceLoft XL

Sometimes, smaller is better. The SpaceLoft XL, flown by UP Aerospace, is not large, but is capable of competing with other, more massive launch vehicles in nearly every aspect of flight operations. As one pioneer honoring others, SpaceLoft has the distinction of lofting the remains of both Gordon Cooper and James Doohan to their final resting places. For educational outreach, SpaceLoft has also carried student experiments in hopes to raise interest in science for a younger generation. With multiple payload configurations available, SpaceLoft is sure to be indispensable as a mainstay in the light-medium payload arena.
