An Atlas 5 rocket, flying again in the 501 configuration, launches with the second of two contructed X-37B Orbital Test Vehicles, OTV-2, less than a year after the first made its successful test flight. The two winged, reusable spacecraft are conducting test flights in secrecy, with current mission and future applications not disclosed.
