There are many rumors surrounding the X-37B including one that claims the solar-powered, robotic X-37B is a weapon designed to capture or damage other satellites.

The X-37B fact sheet lists the plane’s objectives as testing reusable spacecraft technology and operating experiments that return to Earth for examination.

Built by Boeing’s Phantom Works arm, the X-37B is operated by the Air Force’s Rapid Capabilities Office.
