Its a CIA Catholic Inquisition agency mission they have been putting high energy lasers in space that can hit any target on earth it will be under the Pope's control to call down fire on the enemies of the Vatican at will and take out other satellites ! It will make the Pope look like God to fools ! But he will never be !

Some other things we don't know; what they were doing before and, what they're doing now... Anyone that doesn't believe theres a secret space program, only needs to think about these things..... I saw some shit back in 93'.... They're flying from ground to space so regularly its commonplace... And, there's more than one.. more than a few, small, personal sized craft capable of doing these things and more... based on some kind of advanced propulsion that resembles anti-gravity.... Either that or, ET exists and is frequenting our planet.

the fact that it is called an x37===B might be a clue maybe ... they did not call it an x37t or x37a t=transport a=attack b=bomber
style5tie (1 год назад)
If the first letter was B, then it would be a bomber. The first character designates the type: a=attack, b=bomber, f=fighter, c=cargo, x=experimental. The letter following the number is the version. So, this is experimental-37, version B. That being said, what the Air Force is actually doing with it is anyone's guess.

they went up there to try and communicate with the dark night space probe that has been in a near polar orbit for an estimated 3000 years

its no secret everybody knows about it just not what its mission is. people should stop calling it secret. just like area 51 if you have pictures and video of it its no secret

I see post on here saying it's a weapon, I do not agree, it's alot easier to put a satellite in high earth orbit with function carbide "telephone pole" sized payload and drop them from said orbit for kinetic energy weapon, it will do as much damage as a nuclear bomb but with out the fall out of radiation, I personally have doubts about the meteor that blew up over Tunguska Russia being a meteor, the odds of two meteors in 100 years show up over the same area that actually do damage is astronomical, but it could happen just highly unlikely. IMHO

roy romano (2 года назад)
Well, it is doing a spy mission. If nothing else, it's testing to see if they can put a ship in orbit that way they can drop it on any country in under an hour. It's genius really. It's also being done for "military presence" reasons. The usa flexing it's arms. Nothing wrong with it.

If its secret why do we know the program was in effect you would think something secret would not be talked about without consequence? Maybe classified would be better description being that its know existence but its blueprints and basic structure is unknown outside of the group of people working on it.

I wasn't aware anyone knew about this at all. this was highly classified. I feel sorry for the leak source. unless it was officially disclosed publicly by an authorized official.     but it doesn't matter. right now. theyre just getting things together and getting their bearings up there.  maybe they went to luna and back 10 times by now. maybe they were 'doing something' in orbit.    just practicing remote maneuvers.  eventually the orbital tactical platform will be complete and well be able to attack any nation from orbit where they cant fire back at it. itll be a place to launch tactical drones from too.  by the time they see em coming, its already too late.    it wont be finished for a few more years, theres bots up there builing it now. more stuff needs to be brought up first.  it will be big news the first time its used.  theyre using orbiting debris of thiers as materials to build with,and are getting an education about how to manufacter in space.   but its better off a secret or other nations will have their fingers on that little red button at all times, ready to press it ,and some nations have itchy trigger fingers.     so I'm surprised even this much was disclosed at this stage of it.   but it doesn't matter cause we are the only ones that can do all this.   and there wont be a way to counter act it once its operational.  but its a long way off.   right now its more about how to control a remote controlled plane in space so far away moment to moment.     2 years is a nice flight time. that's longer than astronuaghts can stay in space. its a great first step.

ever thought that the government actually like conspiracy nuts? they are better propagandists for a all knowing powerful US government than anything the mainstream media ever puts out. here is a interesting question though, what if alot of the conspiracy nuts are government workers to change the narrative and reframe a conspiracy. what if alot of the conspiracies of 911 ect ect are in fact conspiracies to cover up that the government is totally and utterly useless and the conspiracy nuts reframe it to an all powerful government.

Sounds like they are building a space station, however that doesn't explain the long stays. Unless they are trying to construct the IN space. Even then, its hard to keep a secret like that in plain view.

I guess it's mapping out Russian or Chinese satellite orbits, So they can be taken out effectively if need be. Maybe it will be armed later to that purpose as well.

+chaistan The X-37B was launched on 11th December 2012, it was actually a postponed launch originally scheduled for 25th October 2012. The North Korean satellite was launched on the 12th December 2012. Rather a coincidence if I do say so myself.

You going to need more then that your going to need like a iss gas station and then your going to need another gas station on the moon if you can even make it their on the space plan, it would be better to make a microwave jet engine solar powered space plane and probably fly straight to the moon if solar space plane can fly around the earth, if anybody seen it on the news or were all doomed to die of war and famine and sloth.

Lotusrk123 (3 года назад)
Nothing. They can't predict where it will be as it changes orbit. This means it is powered and more of a ship than a satellite. Plus, they're probably being cautious approaching a possible superior hostile in space.

What they need to do is make space stations bigger, and also utilize magnetic energy and more computers with artificial intelligent that are autonomous and perform automatic, and robotic arms outside of space stations so astronauts do not have to be outside as much as they should, they be safer.

Hey Zach, imagine if the US showed off the technology that is actually secret, maybe some of the Area 51 stuff for starters ;)
HaydenHatTrick (2 года назад)
+Fox Mulder Everything in area 51 is on a need to know basis.... AKA, nobody who works there knows what it has or how things in it works. That is of course, until their products are released to the public. You can find lists of the things area 51 produced in the past. TBH I don't find it all that interesting as each project is still quite on part with the tech you would expect to be in development at any stage in history. If you want to know what they are up to, you should just look at what anyone else is working on more publicly. The military have simple principles for tech development. I have been told a few of them from engineers who used to work for the military in Australia. "If your making something new, somebody is already doing it. If their not, don't bother." and "everything must be made from off the shelf components" Essentially, the only secrets they have is HOW they are putting together research projects. The primary research is quite public. I feel more sorry for the engineers who have to keep their work secret and try to still get jobs afterwards.

They didn't have to specify what Air Force it for multiple reasons.  1. It might be uploaded to the internet, but that doesn't mean the intended audience in foreign, so in that case they don't care if you don't know what Air Force it is. *_Translation:_*_ Go fuck yourself._ 2. If you can't figure out what Air Force this is, with all the hints, and clues etc. Maybe the US flag gave it away, or NASA, or the american accent, or that the US Air Force is the biggest in the world and is one of the few, if not only country that has the funding for a project like this, etc etc etc. Basically, if you can't figure out that they're talking about the US Air Force, again, they don't give a shit, because you're an idiot. *_Translation:_*_ Go fuck yourself._
