KSC lands secret Air Force X-37B space plane, jobs Move could bring hundreds of employees to the Space Coast
A secretive military space plane will move into a vacant former space shuttle hangar at Kennedy Space Center, potentially bringing hundreds of jobs, officials confirmed Friday.
Use of the former shuttle hangar called Orbiter Processing Facility-1 will allow the Air Force’s classified X-37B program “to efficiently land, recover, refurbish and re-launch” the unmanned system in Florida, according to The Boeing Co., which built and supports the program’s two orbital vehicles.
