  • Left a pretty good group of space photos … enjoyed you on Coast to Coast as always but want to make one correction. The X-37B #2 is not headed to KSC for launch. #2 is actually the one in orbit. #1 which has already returned to Vandenburg has been recycled to go back up and it will mate to an Atlas this summer at CCAFS for its 2nd trip to space. Just wanted to make sure we were all on the same page.
