X-37B Spacecraft OTV-3 Mission Nears a Year in Orbit

The USAF launched the mysterious X-37B spacecraft on December 11 of 2012 for its OTV-3 mission. It has been almost a year now and the spacecraft is still in orbit. Exactly what the mission of the X-37B is we don’t know. The particulars of the spacecraft and its mission are classified.

This is the third mission for the X-37B and the second for this specific spacecraft reports Space.com. The X-37B in orbit right now was also in space for mission OTV-1 and spent 225 days in orbit. Another X-37B went up for OTV-2 mission and spent 469 days in space.

The X-37B spacecraft are similar to the retired space shuttle fleet, but are completely unmanned. They are also significantly smaller.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
