The U.S. Air Force's mysterious X-37B space plane is nearing a major milestone — one year of travel in Earth orbit, performing duties in support of long-term space objectives.
The unmanned X-37B spacecraft — flying a mission known as Orbital Test Vehicle 3 (OTV-3) — launched into space atop an Atlas 5 rocket from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Dec. 11, 2012. What payloads the space plane is toting and the overall mission goals on its confidential cruise are classified.

Wow. That seems to be an incredibly arrogant statement. Between the graphic and the statement "Nothing is Beyond Our Reach," when regarding the context of this (spy satellite), I think that was a really piss poor choice.
I can't help but notice they don't show the U.S. on the Earth, instead it's Asia and Europe with one of the giant tentacles right over Russia and ending in the Middle East.
