Air Force, the X-37B is an experimental test program that aims to demonstrate “reusable spacecraft technologies for America’s future in space and operating experiments, which can be returned to, and examined, on Earth.
While we don’t know what China’s top-secret spacecraft looks like, a Chinese military source pointed to America’s X-37B when asked for details on the mission.
The Post, citing Xinhua, reported that during its two-day flight, the spacecraft would test reusable technologies with the aim of “providing technological support for the peaceful use of space.
A Chinese military source confirmed to the Post that staff and visitors to the launch site had been warned not to film the lift-off or talk about it online. “There are many firsts in this launch.
The spacecraft was launched with a Long March-2F rocket, per the South China Morning Post, and successfully returned to its scheduled landing site on Sunday.
And although details of the mission were scarce, the Chinese military source told the Post that it should “take a look at the US X-37B,” a reference to the U. S.
In recent days, China has quietly launched a secret reusable spacecraft, left it in orbit for two days and safely landed it back on Earth.
