X-37B Orbital Spaceplane Launch


Pretend you didn’t see this. It’s the launch of a mini Space Shuttle like
craft called the X-37B that’s scheduled to orbit the earth for over a
year. It’s carried to space by an Atlas rocket. I’m on a roof at least 5
miles west of the launchpad, which is on Cape Canaveral Air Force Base.
The first few launches of this vehicle were kept somewhat quiet, but those
restrictions seem to be lessening. More information about the mission is
available at spaceflightnow.com/atlas/av034/status.html .
