Just wanted to bring this back to all of your attention.

It's a capability test for the platform.

Maybe next pass will test the "adversarial maintenance" function.

No one else really interested in this? Or are you all beaten?
You can't find anything out at all?
Maybe I should ask wikileaks?

A challenge to ATS would be to find as much info as possible but could prove impossible. Nothing new from what we already know.

Entertainment sure...


But cheap?! I guess anything is cheaper than the B-2...

I'm curious OP, what do you think might be contained in the X-37B that wasn't there before?
