A Secret Space weapon?
The study of UFOs or UFPs often focuses on alien visitation the images of craft which cannot be named thought to be extraterrestrial in origin.
There is one of these craft that most ufologists agree is an earth based technology possibly based on reversed engineered alien technology but built and flown by humans.
The TR3B has a triangular shape moves silently across the sky is said to be able to fly in and out of the atmosphere at will as well as being capable of traveling at huge speeds.
This craft remains shrouded in secrecy officially it does not exist.
There is however another craft that can also carry out some of the same things and this one is not secret, well it is public knowledge that NASA has this machine but what they use it for is more of a secret.
The X-37B space plane flown in collaboration by the US Air Force and NASA.
The craft is very similar in design to NASA’s space shuttle although it is much, much smaller.
The space plane is operated robotically, it is a reusable drone.
The X-37B is around 29ft (8.8m) in length and 9.5ft (2.9 m) in height.
With a wingspan of a little less than 15ft (4.6 m) and a launch weight of 11,000lbs (4,990kg).
The vehicle is propelled into orbit on a rocket but lands under its own power in the same way as the space shuttle, gliding back down to the ground and landing like a conventional airplane.
According to X-37B manufacturer Boeing, the space plane operates in low-earth orbit, between 110 (177km) and 500 miles (800km) above earth.
We have all the technical data for the craft but its mission’s, payloads and flight plans remain a mystery, NASA did reluctantly reveal that it had a materials experiments aboard.
The secrecy has left the public guessing as to what the X37B is really up to.
Theories range from it being a space bomber to a weapon for the destruction of enemy satellites
Another mysterious thing with this craft is the length of time it spends on missions, it has flown a mission for the US military which lasted almost two years. Staying in orbit for a record 700 days.
The X-37B space plane, has the military designation Orbital Test Vehicle-4 (OTV-4).
This shows that the US military has long had a presence in space and have been militarizing the stars for decades, long before Trump and his space force.
This opens up into many theories, space warfare, alien contact, alien warfare, the inhabitation of other planets and more.
But let’s stick with the X37B.
And look at X-37’s secret MISSIONS.
The unmanned space plane has flown three secret missions that we are aware of, on each sortie it has hauled an unknown payload on long-duration flights in Earth orbit.
Some say that the space drone is testing a new form of high-tech propulsion adapted from alien spaceships.
However, the Air Force continually make the claim that these missions are simply test exercises.
This secrecy fuels the Theory of the space plane being a space bomber, a clandestine probe or a weapons platform tasked with 'taking out' spy satellites.
A secret war being fought in space.
The US and Russia battling over dominance but more countries join the battle daily China, India and others all rushing to claim a section of the heavens for themselves.
NASA and the military firmly deny this and adhere to the idea that the mystery vehicle, is a technology test bed Used for materials experiment, and the Planetary Society claims it will be testing a solar-sail.
This sail named LightSail.
A new form of space propulsion system which utilizes the pressure of photons from the sun, a technique known as solar sailing. This technology has leapt from the pages science fiction to reality and the X37B is the platform that will first use this technology to power flight.
Another operation the drone will carry out is the delivery of Nine CubeSat nanosatellites, releasing them into orbit above the planet.
CubeSats are miniature satellites that have been used exclusively in low Earth orbit for 15 years, and are now being used for interplanetary missions. The basic design of a CubeSat is a 10-centimeter (4-inch) cube with a mass of less than 1.33 kilograms (2.93 lbs.) Among the prominent uses of Earth-orbiting CubeSats today:
Planet Labs, an Earth observation company, has dozens of CubeSat-sized Dove satellites in orbit, as well as a few RapidEye CubeSats. These CubeSats are used in everything from disaster response to climate monitoring.
The NanoRacks CubeSat Deployer on the International Space Station launches CubeSats after they have been hauled to orbit aboard a visiting ISS vehicle.
NASA's CubeSat Launch initiative provides launch slots for CubeSats aboard traditional rocket launches
The Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office will also have the X37 carry some of its advance materials onboard so that they can study the durability of these various materials in a space environment.
However, many claim that these goals are just a small part of the vehicle's true mission set.
The drone is 'very likely' be used to test technologies that will increase spying capabilities of the US.
'The US government has a bottomless appetite for sensitive information,' and this could be the ultimate platform for spying.
The robotic space plane silently orbiting the Earth, ready to shoot down nukes in a secret continuation of the Cold War era "Star Wars" program.
But is there any proof to these wild claims, yes, yes there is.
In regards to the X37B being a Space Bomber
An independent experts says that at one point the Pentagon funded the development of a reusable hypersonic vehicle that would deliver armaments and munitions anywhere in the world within a 2 hour time frame.
The concept, titled “the Common Aero Vehicle”, was suborbital.
As a spaceplane, the X-37B would suffer from at least one major drawback as a bomber. Changing a spacecraft's orbital plane requires a great amount of thrust—so using something like the X-37B as a bomber would mean changing its orbit to fly over targets, and that would eat up its limited fuel supply, according to University of Maryland professor Mark Lewis, who once served as the Air Force's chief scientist.
But if the x37 can successfully deploy a solar sail this limitation vanishes.
The payoff would be worth it in terms of the effectiveness of the weapons, a kinetic bomb like those proposed Jerry Pournelle allowing for an orbital strike on the planetary surface with an inert projectile, the destructive force coming from the kinetic energy of the projectile impacting at very high speeds.
These "Rods from God" could cause damage much worse than that of a nuclear weapon, and they have the bonus of not leaving the place contaminated by nuclear fallout.
If the X37B is a bomber it would need to have accurate targeting systems these could also work for surveillance purposes make the craft a Spy Plane.
Some have claimed that the spaceplane has been spying on the Chinese space station, noting that the orbit of the X-37B brings it extremely close to that of the Tiangong (china’s space station).
Brian Weeden, from the Secure World Foundation, disputed this claim.
Weeden, a former Air Force officer who worked at U.S. Strategic Command's Joint Space Operations Center, argued that the China spying theory ignores what is known as right ascension, a critical component of the spacecraft's orbit.
The orbit of the X-37B crosses that of the Chinese space station only at two different points.
He says that it would not be possible for the space plane to monitor the Chinese space station and that the story is Chinese propaganda, other say he is covering for the US spy agencies.
A group of civilian satellite spotters did track the X-37B, and noted that the spaceplane's orbit takes it over countries including Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
Whatever secret payload the X-37B is carrying it could indeed be used to capture information from those countries.
Or could the government be telling the truth?
It has always been maintained that the X-37B is simply an experimental platform for testing reusable-space-vehicle technologies and for "operating experiments which can be returned to, and examined, on Earth.
Reconnaissance and research are not mutually exclusive. X-37B could be doing both.
What do you think the X37B is doing?
Is it a peaceful research platform or an armed weapons system orbiting the earth in a continuing battle for territory’s in the stars?
