Quote
The X-37B is to be launched on an Atlas V rocket from SLC-41  at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. The spacecraft will be placed into low Earth orbit for testing, then it will be de-orbited for landing. The landing is to occur on a runway at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California with Edwards Air Force Base as the alternate site.  The duration of the mission has not been announced, although an Air Force spokesperson has said the vehicle has a requirement to be on-orbit for up to 270 days.  The launch is scheduled for no earlier than April 22, 2010. A second test for the X-37B is scheduled for 2011.  The Air Force has not revealed what the spaceship's specific payload is, stating only that it will "demonstrate various experiments and allow satellite sensors, subsystems, components, and associated technology to be transported into space and back."

Just so everybody gets an idea what Koen is talking about here, this is a ROBOT spacecraft, the first UAV for space.
