Boeing's X-37 robotic space shuttle ends maiden voyage

One of the coolest and most mysterious high-tech gadgets around has to be Boeing's X-37B rocket ship.

The robotic mini-space shuttle completed its first flight today after more than a decade of secretive development. Its landing came after more than 220 days in space on an "experimental test mission."

Boeing announced "the successful de-orbit and landing" but didn't say much else in a one-paragraph press release today.
