This is the first I’ve heard of it.
Fellow Ghettonians, I bring you: The X-37B UOV.
“In May of 2010, The New York Times reported that amateur astronomers were able to detect the orbital pattern of the first X-37B, heightening suspicion that the vehicle was being used for surveillance. According to that report, the X37-B’s orbital path included flyovers of areas such as North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan.” -Huffington Post.
“‘We initially planned for a nine-month mission, which we are roughly at
now, but we will continue to extend the mission as circumstances allow,”
Lt. Col Tom McIntyre, the vehicle’s systems program director, told the Los Angeles Times. “Keeping the
X-37 in orbit will provide us with additional experimentation
opportunities and allow us to extract the maximum value out of the
mission.”‘ -Huffington Post.
So either they’ve run into a snag in the reentry sequence, or they wanna keep it up there because they wanna make sure Iranian President Amanutjob isn’t developing missile silos, and because the rest of the Arabs are going bonkers right now.
