A secrets a super secret -- Super secret space plane wow thank you thank you for that raiders super secret space plane finally heading for a landing.
The unmanned Boeing craft with the very -- by name X 37 B has been circling the planet for a year.
The purpose of the mission was a big mystery around Trace Gallagher has been picking up some details from the West Coast newsroom a lot of a -- Shin from anxious and I -- the -- Saturday -- -- the green packet.
Look this super secret mission has really been cloaked -- to be getting mega and the air force is not giving -- very many details.
The X 37 B look -- of -- it looks like a small version of the space shuttle.
It's 29 feet long runs on solar power and orbits the planet at 171000 miles per hour.
The mission was supposed to last -- round 270 days they thought well it's now been up there for 458.
Days and it could landed any time.
At any moment in the next two weeks now.
Nobody is saying exactly why it's been up there so long the air force says it simply testing technology you know it's inexpensive let it fly around and around.
And they're trying to see how long it will last but a lot of experts are not buying this whole.
Bang for your buck theory they believe that this ship is either spying on the Chinese space station.
Moving or disabling enemy satellites or spying from space and -- and amateur astronomers say they have detected its orbit.
And it's flying over Iraq Iran Afghanistan.
And North Korea's so we posed these various theories to our expert let's.
Obviously if you if -- have something in orbit they can look down -- see what's going on that that goes without saying.
The question becomes what kind of technology was being used one they were looking down that's what has to be -- that's what has to be totally secret.
For all the right reasons.
By the way this could start a brand new space race because Russia.
And China have already threatened to build a spaceship just like that good luck -- -- -- Russia's shuttle they don't have one.
This thing by the way is gonna go back up meg in in October.
And this time they have no law no idea how long -- my -- what 458 days this time this thing go on and on and on and off.
