The secretive robotic space plane, U.S. Air Force X-37B is ready and cleared to lift off tomorrow - December 11. The X-37B is a cargo unpiloted space craft carrying classified stuff. The plane will be launched into Earth orbit by and Atlas 5 rocket. The mysterious event will take place at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 1:03 p.m. EST - 18:03 GMT.

The plane that will blast off tomorrow is the same plane that already flew on the first test flight, and spent 224 days orbiting the Earth, only to land on autopilot at a specially prepared runway at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Above image is the inside of the Atlas 5 rocket carrying the X-37B in question which was then blasted into the orbit in April 2010.

Bellow you can watch the video where the Operations Group Commander explains how much work went into successful landing of the robotic space plane.

Nice. I wonder how much money dies USA spent on military every year.

And is there any other country with advanced technologies like USA too?

Very interesting post. Thanks for adding the pictures, it makes your post even more valuable. I also read interesting information in this article by https://www.agmglobalvision.com/helicopt.... . Do you think the US Air Force currently uses the IVP technique described in this article?
