Secretive space plane mission delayed again.
The US Air Force has again delayed the launch of their X-37B ‘research vehicle’, stating “final approvals” as the reason to delay the launch which was originally scheduled for October 25 and later moved to November 27. Some reports suggest the Air Force is looking at December 11 for the launch.
The X-37B was originally launched in 2010, and the Air Force claims the vehicle is for both testing “reusable spacecraft technologies”, and conducting “experiments which can be returned to, and examined, on Earth”. There’s also speculation that the vehicle is used for secret reconnaissance, with the craft likely to be able to be moved over a given location much faster than a conventional satellite.
The last mission for the unmanned vehicle saw it spend 469 days in orbit, landing on June 16 this year.
