After Tuesday’s successful launch of the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle 3 atop an Atlas V 501 Rocket blasting off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Satellite Trackers have successfully observed the vehicle for the first time.
Tuesday’s successful launch began the third mission of the X-37B, the second flight of this particular vehicle that also flew the OTV-1 mission in 2010. It also marked the first time a re-usable space vehicle was launched atop an Expendable Launch Vehicle to make its second trip to space.
