Its not a secret if you are talking about it. And I believe it was a spaceX vehicle or Lockheed, siera-Nevada or someone. They are privately held companies. So quit bitching if you don't know what you are talking about.

Sometimes it pays to read before posting.

December 9. 2012 - CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.- The military's mysterious mini-shuttle is set to launch this week on a classified mission that has captured the imaginations of everyone from amateur satellite trackers to anti-nuclear protestors and potential military adversaries Russia and China.

Built by Boeing's secretive Phantom Works in Huntington Beach, Calif., the Air Force X-37B spacecraft is rumored to be everything from a space bomber to a satellite-killer or a test-bed for advanced spy satellite sensors.

The Air Force is revealing little.

Well hell I'm sorry, my bad. Bit my neighbor who is a big wheel out there told me it was a boeing, space X or Sierra-Nevada thing but of course the AF will be involved, it is Cape Canaveral AFS on that side. Kennedy is the other, they are separate.

Anything we can do, the Chinese can do better and faster in their sweat shops.
