The ultra- secret space aircraft of the United States Air Force , The Boeing X-37B, landed in Florida last Sunday after 780 days – 2 years and one month – in orbit around Earth. And we still have no idea what he has been doing there.
The X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle-5 (OTV-5) mission has been the fifth mission in which this unmanned vehicle has flown around the world, exceeding the duration of its fourth mission, which landed in May 2017 after 718 days in orbit During the last mission the ship was launched from a Falcon 9 rocket on September 7, 2017 .
“The X-37B continues to demonstrate the importance of a reusable space plane,” Air Force secretary Barbara Barrett said in a statement . “Each mission improves the spatial competencies of our nation.”
What are those skills ? We do not know . But according to the Air Force, the X-37B has the unique ability to “test new systems in space and bring them back to Earth” in addition to the mission ” successfully completing ” all its objectives.
Military leaders, many of whom were previously skeptical about the need for a completely new branch of armed services, seem to be excited about President Trump’s Space Force and the role of the X-37B . At least that’s what it implies and l press release from the Air Force.
“The return of this spacecraft, after breaking its own resistance record, is the result of the innovative partnership between the Government and Industry,” said Air Force personnel chief General David L. Goldfein.
This last mission left from Cape Canaveral and landed at the Kennedy Space Center NASA on October 27, 2019 . The last time this space plane returned to Earth they recorded a video of its landing . This time, however, there was no video .
“This program continues to expand the limits of the only reusable space vehicle in the world. With today’s successful landing , the X-37B completed its longest flight to date and successfully completed all mission objectives, ” said Randy Walden, director of the Air Force Rapid Response Office .
“This mission successfully carried out experiments of the Air Force Research Laboratory, among others, in addition to transporting some small satellites .”
The Air Force says it plans to launch the sixth X-37B mission in 2020. And we don’t seem to know much about that launch either.
What do you think they have been doing ? Some time ago , thinking of something like “aliens” could have been ridiculous . But even the Pentagon has released some videos of “unidentified aerial phenomena . ”
I am not saying that they are transporting aliens in a super secret Air Force space plane . But they are probably transporting aliens in a super secret Air Force space plane.
