What The X? What The X-37 Can Do…

Posted: December 4, 2010 in Uncategorized

Professional speculation abounds about what purpose the recently returned X-37 might fulfill.

From DoD Buzz, there’s this:

It could take advanced sensors into space for testing and, probably, allow sensors to operate from the X-35B as a large, stable platform with an independent power source. That power source (folding solar panels) might free sensors from carrying batteries, which would make them much smaller and lighter and perhaps extend their operational life.

More likely, it’s an industrial base issue, with the X-37 serving to sustain space industry jobs. Remember, the X-37 program did start with NASA. 

I’m just kidding.  Sorta.

The truth is out there.
