Regular readers of this blog know I am fascinated with the X-37B.  It has landed after 2 1/2 years in orbit.  Story here.  They are telling us more and more regarding what is being done on each mission, but the parts they aren’t telling us are the ones I find interesting. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who would be fascinated by this.)

Interesting story here on the use of MiG-31s in Ukraine.  Not sure I believe they are really having much success.

Just within the last day, this and this happened and barely made any news.  Space launches are becoming very common, which is both good news and bad news. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

And way to go SpaceX. Another country headed to the moon. The more countries that do this the better off we are as a species. Story here. (post in honor of Mike Nofsinger)
