I was at the National Space Symposium this week and they had this on display. This is the landing test vehicle, not the one that was launched last year. Still, very cool to see a vehicle that has been making so much news lately.

Sort of secret stuff.
Look slike it has a payload bay. Hmm too small for a satelite of much worth.
Maybe a good camera?

It was originally a NASA project, but DARPA took it over and it became a classified project. As Darpa are a military defence outfit, we are unlikely to be told what they are planning to use it for.

Some countries have expressed concerns about it being for developing / supporting weapons in space, something which has been denied by the Pentagon. So, it's probably true. ;)
