Current launch of the x37B Space Plane is set for 5:27 pm, March 4, 2011.

Indeed, official have offered few details about today’s space plane launch.  What is is for, what it can do, what it’s mission is- is all up for debate.  While we wish it was researching teleportation; in reality, we do know from the military is that-

The X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle will provide a flexible space test platform to conduct various experiments and allow satellite sensors, subsystems, components and associated technology to be efficiently transported to and from the space environment where it will need to function.- http://www.dodlive.mil/index.php/2010/04/air-force-bloggers-roundtable-air-force-set-to-launch-first-x-37b-orbital-test-vehicle/    

Last year some amateur astronomer found the X-37B, resulting in it being tracked in apps such as the Simple Satellite Tracker.  Saw it as clear as the ISS in the night sky.
 
“It’s a classified mission,” said Maj. Tracy A. Bunko, an Air Force spokeswoman. The spacecraft will be carrying “reusable technologies for America’s future in space and operating experiments, which can then be returned to and examined on Earth.”

The first X-37B was launched from the Cape last April, and 224 days later it landed on its own — fully automated — on a 15,000-foot-long airstrip at Vandenberg Air Force Base, northwest of Santa Barbara. The plane being launched this week is also expected to land there sometime late this year. via http://www.latimes.com/news/science/la-fi-space-plane-20110304,0,7597538.story

“The exploration and use of outer space … shall be for peaceful purposes and shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interest of all countries, irrespective of their degree of economic or scientific development. …prevention of an arms race in outer space would avert a grave danger for international peace and security Prevention of an arms race in outer space, United Nations General Assembly Resolution, A/RES/55/32, January 2001. (PDF Document)  

Yeah, okay.
 
This morning a Taurus XL rocket did not separate as expected at about three minutes after launch of the Glory weather satellite.  Crashed into the Ocean— so they said.  Better luck to the Atlas 5, powering the X-37B.
 
 
X-37B will go from Space Launch Complex-41, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. If the launch scrubs, the next launch attempt is set for March 5. The launch period for March 4 opened at 3:39 p.m. EST and extends until 5:37pm.
Updated 5:25 pm, the launch has been scrubbed due to bad weather, everything else was go.  Rescheduled for 4:09 pm on Saturday, March 6, 2011.  Stay tuned.

UPDATED https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2011/03/04/x-37b-space-plane-ready-set-go-for-what/

The U.S’s., sort of top-secret spy plane the X-37B,  also called the Orbital Test Vehicle 1 (OTV-1) landed at Vandenberg AFB on Friday at 1:16 a.m. in the darkness. 

Vandenberg released infrared camera video of the craft rolling to a stop, recovery crews approaching in vehicles and working around it in protective suits, much the way space shuttles are handled upon landing. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/03/x-37b-spacecraft-returns-_n_791579.html

Conspiracy has been abuzz ever since the X-37’s perfect launch from Cape Canaveral, FL in April 2010.  Depending on who was issuing the launch press release, everyone from NASA, the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office,  Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) the Air Force Research Laboratory, Air Force Space Command’s 3rd Space Experimentation Squadron and United Launch Alliance has had something to do with the X-37B.  More on the launch at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/04/22/x37b-otv-spaceplane-launch-to-militarize-space/.   

With so many agencies working on this top secret project, we have to ask how the project has managed to stay so tight lipped in this day and age of Wikileaks?  (No one can find Assange let alone Osama.)

The site, Not Another CONspiracy http://www.notanotherconspiracy.com/2010/04/x-37b-prompt-global-strike.html  opinions that, “the X-37B would make an excellent platform for a Prompt Global Strike.” 

Citing the nytimes.com

Called Prompt Global Strike, the new weapon is designed to carry out tasks like picking off Osama bin Laden in a cave, if the right one could be found; taking out a North Korean missile while it is being rolled to the launch pad; or destroying an Iranian nuclear site — all without crossing the nuclear threshold. In theory, the weapon will hurl a conventional warhead of enormous weight at high speed and with pinpoint accuracy, generating the localized destructive power of a nuclear warhead.

Contrail spirals similar to an advanced solid-rock­et missile

Various experiments?  September 10, 2010 a mysterious missile lit up the sky off the coast of Los Angeles.  What kind of experiment could it have been?  The North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, issued a statement jointly with the U.S. Northern Command, or NORTHCOM, saying that the contrail was not the result of a foreign military launching a missile.  via http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/11/09/missile-launch-los-angeles_n_780858.html If it wasn’t foreign, was it one of ours?

The official/unofficial explanation was an airplane contrail.  Could an X-37B  or a similar vehicle launch have caused the sky disturbance?

Mmmm, remember the Norway lights of December ’09?  A year later and still there is no official explanation.  A rocket launch, airplane contrails, a test shot from an orbiter?  Videos of  intercontinental-range ballistic missile launch contrails can be seen here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/02/norway-lights-missile-debunked/.

Could the X-37B have cloaking properties?  Space watchers have followed the craft on and off all summer along with a multitude of satellites, rockets, debris, and the International Space Station.  Could it have easily caused these and other unexplained lights in the sky? 

…the X-37B been arguably the least-secret secret project on the planet, as fellow backyard astronomers  joined in the scrutiny, aided by how-to video guides and apps such as the Simple Satellite Tracker.

That is, they did until July 29, when the shuttle disappeared, causing all kinds of consternation and conspiracy theories about its fate.

It took amateur skywatcher Greg Roberts of Cape Town, South Africa, who noticed that it failed to appear as scheduled above his base on August 14, another five days to find it.

When he did, he noticed it was some 30km higher and on a different trajectory, according to calculations from other colleagues in Rome and Oklahoma.

The X-37B’s new track takes it on a six-day orbit of the Earth, as opposed to its original four-day orbit. Read more: http://www.darkgovernment.com/news/x-37b-goes-missing-for-two-days/#ixzz16znxXyEK

We can only use our imagination to what experiments were carried out by the X-37B.  The press release pretty much says, “It has landed.  The end. ”  Maybe it is just the beginning.
