A report in a recent copy of the Spaceflight magazine does insinuate that America’s classified X-37B spaceplane has been serving its country well by spying on China. This vehicle has no pilot flying it while it is in the air, considering how it was launched into orbit in March 2011 by the US Air Force, and it does not seem as though it will be making a touchdown on planet earth anytime soon. The Pentagon has remain tight-lipped about the situation and the X-37B’s mission, but amateur space trackers did take note that its path around the globe is more or less the same as that of China’s spacelab, Tiangong-1. The reason for tagging along so closely? To eavesdrop on the laboratory that cannot be reached vie conventional means. Could this be the US’ rather covert method of seeing what its economic rival China has up its sleeves?
Of course, this is but speculation at the moment, and if the US needs to get its spy network up and running, they ought to be checking out what North Korea is doing in the first place ever since the passing of Kim Jong-Il. If that pariah nuclear state can conceal news of it’s leader’s death for more than 24 hours, don’t you think the intelligence agencies in the US need to look into the causes on how they did not manage to get a whiff of that news?
