The engine of SSO on its first XPRIZE-flight has been shutdowned after a burn of 77 seconds but has had propellant for 89 seconds-burn.

After the 77 seconds-burn it reached an altitude of 101,? km.

What altitude might SSO have reached at a 89 seconds-burn?

And what signal might that be to their competitors competing for the CUP in the future? Will they modify their vehicles now to beat Scaled during the CUPs?
