DARPA's Unmanned X-37B Robotic Space Shuttle Returns (UPDATED WITH VIDEO)


It didn't fly into space, but was boosted up by a rocket from the Cape.  It did, however, fly back down, after orbiting for 224 days(!), a record exceeded only by the retired space shuttles.  It landed at the Vandenberg AFB this morning.
