Air Force's second X-37 space plane nears launch
The 29-foot-long, 14-foot-wide space plane is being readied for flight in a processing facility near its launch site at Cape Canaveral, Fla., according to Lt. Col. Troy Giese, the X-37B program manager in the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office.
Like its predecessor last year, the X-37B will lift off inside the nose cone of an Atlas 5 rocket.
