In its notes about the launch, ULA says, “The Department of the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office continues to push the flight envelope for the X-37B and will build upon its growing collaboration with experiment partners with its sixth mission.”

The plane will be carried by a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket, as part of a mission designated USSF-7 (United States Space Force-7), launched for Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The U.S. Air Force, along with the newly-minted Space Force, is about to launch the mysterious X-37B space plane on a sixth secretive mission.

It also shared that the same mission will deploy a small satellite called FalconSat-8, developed by the Air Force Academy to conduct unspecified experiments, as well as two NASA experiments for studying space radiation.
