The US government has secretly developed its new weapons for year. On 23 April 2010, a miniature space shuttle, X-37B, which is 8.9m long and has a wing-span of 4.5m, was launched from Florida by the Atlas V Centaur rocket. The X-37B will be used to position satellites and other types of surveillance. This is unmanned spacecraft which can stay in orbit for up to 270 days. Both Chinese and Russian media widely report the X-37B, but not in Japan.
