Orlando: A US Air Force space shuttle landed at the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday morning after spending 780 days in space.
The secret orbital test mini-carrier, called the X-37B, arrived at the Kennedy Space Center Shuttle Landing Facility at 3.51 Sunday morning, after being in orbit for two years since its initial launch on September 7, 2017.
"The safe return of this probe, after breaking its own resistance record, is the result of the innovative partnership between government and industry," Air Force Chief of Staff David L. Goldfein said in a press release. "The sky is no longer the limit for the Air Force and, if Congress approves, the US Space Force."
This was the second time the space shuttle X-37B landed at the Kennedy Space Center when the fourth mission landed after 718 days in orbit on May 7, 2017.
