Alright kids, place your bets. The last mission was 718 days, so what's the bet on this mission?
The Air Force says the vehicle will be carrying small satellites for this trip, as well as testing out experimental technologies for space. A special payload called the Advanced Structurally Embedded Thermal Spreader will also be on board, meant to try out a new vibrating heat pipe.
