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.
