The X-37B OTV-1 (Orbital Test Vehicle 1) will be launching sometime in January of 2010. Reports are still sketchy but it looks like this may finally get off the ground.
The X-37 was seen back in 2006 being test dropped from Scaled Composites White Knight.
The X-37B will be launched by a Atlas V EELV. The Boeing designed craft is capable of staying in orbit for up to 3 weeks.
