X-37b launching soon

The X-37B will launch again on December 7th as a part of USSF-52 mission.

Only this time… the spaceplane is launching on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy???

What could be the reason for the need for such a heavy lunch vehicle?

    What does this thing even do? Answers range from new material/component testing to being able to sabotage Russian/chink satellites.

      Mostly just long term automated experiments and materials testing
      People who say it’s a nuke launcher or sat stealer are space noobs who know nothing.

      Ever hear of international waters? Sometimes even that's too much jurisdiction for certain activities. Telescopes can see everything X-37B does but not whats going on inside the hull, that's all I'll say.

        Inside the hull is where our bravest Spaceforce recruits are fricking the hottest captive aliens you can imagine. The wars of the future will be fought not just with weapons, logistics, technology... but with hybrid vigor.

      Both. It's a test bed for all sorts of future space shit, capture vehicles included.

      It's a drone version of the space shuttle for all intents and purposes so it's really up to whatever mission parameters it's currently on.

      Testing.
      What? You think most of the tech on the current gen fighters were all whipped up from scratch during the plane’s development? Maybe China does shit like that, since they just steal tech. But nations that actually R&D their own shit usually have to test stuff on an actual aircraft of some sort.

      it definitely does this.
      >being able to sabotage Russian/chink satellites.
      it may or may not carry sub-satellites for monitoring and disruption. there is a whole chessmatch going on up there all the time, with orbital positioning, maneuvers, blocking and tackles. It'll be fun when it's finally declassified.

      Mostly testing but the schizo rumors I've read say it's a way to capture satellites and destroy them without throwing shit all over orbit (like the moronic Russians did when they shot down that satellite a few years ago)

    disinfo shills are quick off the mark to tell you it's nothing you need to worry about

    It's probably going up to spy on ukraine

      You know there is an entire network of glowBlack person satellites already doing this right

    >Using a heavy LV
    Puts more mass into a given orbit, which means more potential mass for maneuver propellant for orbital maneuvers or otherwise a heavier payload.

      Neither, it's going into an orbit which requires much more dv to achieve

      I still can't figure out how to travel to other planets in that game.

        If you want to do it the moron way, just play around with maneuver nodes until you get an encounter. Understand that efficient trips will require launches at a given time of the year. Alternatively, you can go online and look up launch windows and ∆v requirements for whatever body you're trying to visit

      Those colors are coming out of the ship's Nethers, that's why.

    That’s actually a very good question, I have no idea what it needs all that energy for. Can it get to GTO?

      With a falcon heavy I would certainly hope so seeing as how that's generally reserved for interplanetary missions.
