This is very cool. Today the Air Force launched the X-37B space plane. The unmanned aircraft is 1/4 the size of the space shuttle, designed to stay in orbit 270 days, 28 feet long, and has a 15 foot wingspan. The X-37B once up in space with function like any satellite, but will return how once given the command to return to Earth. No remote control on Earth needed the X-37B will land autonomously. Creepy.
