I'm not saying it's a satellite weapon...My guess is that it is a spy satellite, and a very new gen one at that. Information is far more important right now, than having a weapon in space...and in the past, such "non-payload" missions are EXACTLY how (allegedly) they've launched such satellites...

It's the Air Force doing this, so it is designed to destroy, maim and kill.

The more I think about it the more humorous it is. So we've spent untold fortunes developing this new craft, oh yes its amazing we're testing it right now. What? No, I'm sorry... we actually don't know when its returning... someone call George this seems like it could have been important, George has no idea either huh. You know we'll have to get back to you on that one.

America's space program is going black. This is just another example of it. I'm sure most of you have heard about Obama "privatizing" the space industry, and how NASA will now buy their tech from private companys. One of the biggest reasons for this is to keep everything secret. If the "spaceships" are built designed and operated by privare companys, and NASA just pays for tickets, then that tech becomes the intellectual property of said company, and they don't have to tell us anything about what they are working on and developing or how their equipment works.
