US Air Force Space Plane returns



Here.

I enjoyed the video of the vehicle landing, which looked perfect to me.

It is good to know that our military has something it can use.


The craft is unmanned. Why, then, does one picture show three people in what one might have thought to be some kind of space suit?

I wonder how many countries have military space craft programs, other than satellites?

It is likely that there are very toxic fumes near the motors, even when the descent is a glorified glide. Remember when the live feeds of the space shuttle were commonplace, NASA rolled out huge fans after the landing.
