Boeings Unmanned X37-B Lands After a Year in Orbit

Boeing have announced the successful landing of the Air Force’s X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV) for the U.S. Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office.

This landing concluding a 469-day experimental test mission. It was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on March 5, 2011. OTV-1 was the United States’ first unmanned vehicle to return from space and land on its own. Previously, the space shuttle was the only space vehicle capable of returning to Earth and being reused. The innovative X-37B combines the best of an aircraft and a spacecraft into an affordable, responsive unmanned vehicle.

    It’s funny how many experts on this subject posted their expert opinions. The majority of the private sector think they have a good grasp of the technological capabilities of US military. Some of it is wishful thinking fueled by Hollywood. Mostly they have NO IDEA! The government spoon feeds the info at their discretion for reasons the public may not understand. Many people have made entire careers on perceived conspiracy and theories of clandestine technologies. An arsenal of Misinformation.

    That’s why a number of subs are always on patrol…multiple missiles, multiple independent warheads. Somebody’s always near enough…but adversaries don’t know where. Sats can be tracked and predicted easier than subs.And you underestimate how hard it is to re-enter (or make something you carry re-enter) a significant distance from the deploying sats’ ground track (or change orbit). Look up ‘cross-range,’ what it takes to get it, why the Shuttle had delta wings….

    Thats extremely unlikely since keeping such a vessel in orbit for a year would cause it to have the need for repair due to debris. In addition, you have to remember nearly every developed country has a satellite capable of knowing where such a “bomber” would be.

    People seemed to have forgotten this one was up there.My point is that you could keep a few in orbit all the time so that nobody thinks it is out of the ordinary. They are just up there all the time, nobody pays them much mind, until they are used.

    Well. when I say, “bomber” I did not mean that it would descend and reenter the atmosphere, but rather deploy ordinance from orbit. True, it would have to be on the correct orbital track, but orbiting about once every 45 minutes, it could adjust its orbit in a short time-frame. It would have to carry fuel to allow changing orbits.But my point is that part of launching from a sub or ship is the time (days or possibly weeks) for them to be deployed where needed especially for cruise missiles.

    The space shuttle program really has numbed too many people to the awesomeness of modern space flights. Think about it for a second: This thing blasted off on a huge rocket, stayed in orbit doing all kinds of secret stuff, then plummeted back through the atmosphere as a ball of fire, and executing a perfect landing. All of this happened over the course of over a year with apparently no failures significant enough to cause any major problems……and all without a pilot on board. It’s amazing.
