Secret Spaceplane Spent Over 2 Years in Orbit — Americans Are Just Learning About It For 1 Reason

0

In May 2020, a secret spaceplane called “X-37B” was launched into orbit by the United States Air Force and Space Force.

The American public did not know about the mission until over 900 days later when the spaceplane re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere.

 

The spaceplane created sonic booms in the middle of the night. Hundreds of people across Florida reported the extremely loud noise.

Some people wrongfully believed there were bombs exploding. A resident in Orlando says his surveillance camera recorded the blast.

WATCH:

“It was loud and shook my windows here in Polk County,” one person said.

“Woke me up in west St Pete,” another person said.

“That was one of the loudest ones I have heard. It was heard over a very large portion of Florida,” another person said.

“The X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle-6 (OTV-6), the U.S. Space Force’s unmanned, reusable spaceplane, successfully deorbited and landed at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Shuttle Landing Facility on Nov. 12, 2022, at 05:22 a.m.,” a news release stated.

“Some residents tell us it rattled their windows and shook their homes!”

More from Breitbart News:

The sounds were heard from Jacksonville to Orlando early that morning and most people did not know the origin of the booms because officials did not announce the spaceplane would be landing.

An Orlando neighbor’s surveillance camera recorded the sudden blast and the outlet said:

Meanwhile, the United States Space Force announced in a press release Saturday the X-37B orbital test vehicle had concluded mission number six.

OTV -6 was the first mission to introduce a service module-a ring attached to the rear of the vehicle expanding the number of experiments that can be hosted during a mission. “This mission highlights the Space Force’s focus on collaboration in space exploration and expanding low-cost access to space for our partners, within and outside of the Department of the Air Force (DAF),” said Gen. Chance Saltzman, Chief of Space Operations.

“The service module successfully separated from the OTV before landing, which is a necessary activity due to the aerodynamic forces experienced by the X-37B vehicle upon re-entry,” officials stated.
