Air Force Launches Secretive Space Plane; 'We Don't Know When It's Coming Back'
(visit the link for the full news article)
The Air Force launched a secretive space plane into orbit last night from Cape Canaveral, Florida. And they’re not sure when it’s returning to Earth.
Perched atop an Atlas V rocket, the Air Force’s unmanned and reusable X-37B made its first flight after a decade in development shrouded in mystery; most of the mission goals remain unknown to the public.

Mystery Military Space Plane

What's so secretive? When NASA worked on the project it was wide open. It was transferred to DARPA in 04 and then they had a huge specctale/media event test flight in 07 that was barely covered. Rest your paranoia, its ok.

I agree that something stinks here.
If there wasn't something up, there would be no secrecy.
It's the Air Force doing this, so it is designed to destroy, maim and kill.
