X-37B, the top secret American unmanned spacecraft will certainly come back to Earth this week.
The space plane spends nearly 22 months in orbit on a secretive task. It was released two years ago on the 11the of December. The Aircraft was first launched in April 2010 and returned the same year in the month of December.
The military has not yet disclosed anything related to that mysterious plane. It seems like a really secretive mission was assigned to this plane. The space plane is generally known as Orbital Test Vehicle.
On Tuesday, Federal Aviation Administration’s website posted a notice in order to inform that Air space near Vandenberg Air Force Base would be closed due to the arrival of space aircraft.
However, the administration did not notify the authorities about any particular landing timings of Orbital Test Vehicle. The officials stated that the weather condition of that region will determine the exact landing timings.
The aircraft appears like a tiny space shuttle. At the time of its launch Air force reported that it would travel around the Earth for approximately nine months.
As per the rumors, the aircraft’s chief aim was to test an enigmatic weapon or a regular spy satellite. Moreover, the speculations suggest that this satellite is specially designed to attack the enemies. If this space plane accomplishes its goal, then it would be the most innovative creation of Air Force scientists.
