      In 1988, Darpa purchased the first launch by the Pegasus, a new air-launched small-satellite booster designed by Orbital Sciences. The successful first launch took place in April 1990, the Pegasus carried aloft under the wing of NASA's B-52 mothership. (Photo: NASA Dryden Flight Research Center)
