Third X-37B Launch Scheduled for Today


An Atlas V will launch the Air Force’s Third Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV-3) mission.

Scheduled Launch time is: December 11 at 1:03pm EST – Launch Window is 5 Hours

An approaching cold front could delay the launch .  The secret spy shuttle will begin another mission after an incredible 469 day mission that was launched in March 2011. Air Force officials say there is a chance the third mission will end with a landing on the shuttle runway at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
