[Discussion] SpaceX's Covert Operation: The Falcon Heavy Launches U.S. Space Force’s X-37B

Recommended Posts

Launch of a Classified Spaceplane

In a notable event shrouded in secrecy, SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket successfully launched a mysterious military spaceplane into orbit. This clandestine mission, departing from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, marks a significant venture involving the U.S. Space Force’s X-37B spaceplane. Known for its reusable and experimental nature, the X-37B serves as a classified platform for space research. The specifics of the mission, including its target orbit, duration, and payloads, remain undisclosed, maintaining the air of mystery that typically surrounds the X-37B missions.


A New Chapter with Falcon Heavy

This mission marks a departure from previous X-37B launches, as it's the first time the military has utilized the more powerful Falcon Heavy rocket for such an operation. Previously, the 29-foot long X-37B had embarked on missions aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 and United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V rocket. The selection of the triple-boosted Falcon Heavy hints at a potential for more ambitious objectives or farther orbits, although the exact nature of these goals is part of the mission's confidential profile. The Boeing-built X-37B, resembling a miniature space shuttle, is designed to eventually return to Earth, landing on a runway like conventional aircraft.

SpaceX's Growing Launch Legacy

Despite the veil of secrecy, some details have emerged. The mission, known as USSF-52, aims to explore new orbital regimes, test future space domain awareness technologies, and study the effects of space radiation on materials, with NASA contributing an experiment called Seeds-2. This experiment focuses on the impact of space radiation on plants. The launch of USSF-52 marks the fifth mission this year for the Falcon Heavy and its ninth since 2018. Following a series of delays due to weather and undisclosed issues, this successful launch adds to SpaceX’s impressive track record, with this being their 97th launch in the year, closely followed by the 98th launch of a batch of Starlink satellites.
