Puts my 18 inch dobsonian to shame! I guess I have telescope envy!
Sofia was featured on the doco "mighty planes", you can download of the net. I love the old QF 747SP.
I have seen a video of this plane.. It is truly awesome....
I flew with it February. Flight 143! It was great!!
No doubt Carl Sagan is smiling down on this project! Well done team from NASA and Germany! Wow!!!
