Icon104 Air Force space plane lands after secret mission

An unpiloted military space plane, launched by an Atlas 5 rocket in May 2015, glided to an unannounced landing on the long shuttle runway at the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday, closing out a 718-day mission. It was the first Florida landing of a returning spacecraft since Atlantis flew home in the program's final mission in 2011.

Maybe it got lonely? Out in space, on such a timeless flight...

So they are STILL working on next generation space shuttle technology. Just on a much smaller (Thus cheaper) scale.
