On May 7, the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida got a loud surprise. One of the Air Force’s two secret X-37B space planes announced its re-entry to Earth with a loud sonic boom.
The plane is part of the Air Force’s X-37 program. Not much is known about this program except that the Air Force has launched four missions since 2010.
