black holes and gray matter. in one thousand tangos.

             
W: The Air Force launched a secretive space plane into orbit last night  from Cape Canaveral, and they’re not sure when it’s returning  to Earth. Perched atop an Atlas V rocket, the Air Force’s unmanned and reusable  X-37B made its first flight after a decade in development shrouded in  mystery; most of the mission goals remain unknown to the public. With the lack of specificity expected from a classified program, and  without a translator, the Air Force described the X-37B program as “a  flexible space test platform to conduct various experiments and allow  satellite sensors, subsystems, components and associated technology to  be efficiently transported to and from the space environment. This  service directly supports the Defense Department’s technology  risk-reduction efforts for new satellite systems. By providing an  ‘on-orbit laboratory’ test environment, it will prove new technology and  components before those technologies are committed to operational  satellite programs.”
