If it's really so secret then how do you know?

If it's really so secret then why do you know?

Seems to me like any other old "modern secret."

Top-secret X-37B military space plane could land in California this week

The U.S. Air Force's mysterious X-37B space plane will return to Earth this week --possibly as early as Tuesday -- after 22 months in orbit on a secret mission.

The robotic X-37B space plane, also known as the Orbital Test Vehicle, will land at the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, where Air Force officials are gearing up for its return. As of Oct. 12, the X-37B mini-shuttle has been in orbit since December 2012 and racked up a record-shattering 671 days in space.

"Team Vandenberg stands ready to implement safe landing operations for the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, the third time for this unique mission" said Col. Keith Baits, 30th Space Wing commander, in a statement on Friday, Oct. 10. [See photos from the X-37B mission]...
