Interesting Article in New Scientist:

"The reusable X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV) would be about one-fourth the size of the space shuttle and would deliver objects into low-Earth orbit in its experimental bay, which is much like the shuttle's payload bay.
It could then continue orbiting for months before bringing the objects back to Earth."

Launches off a rocket so this is not the rumored SSTO but still cool..........
