X-37B staying up for two years?

Maybe it just parks itself in front of another sat’s camera/sensor  and blocks the view. Like a tall guy with a cowboy hat at a concert.

Then it should wear a cloaking device.

The declassified reports will be fun to read in a few decades.

I like to think that it's retrieving enemy satellites and taking them to Earth for study. Maybe it has a robotic saw to remove solar panels, so the sat will fit inside.

And another arm with a cable to attach it to the satellite outlet and recharge for free.
Also a drill with pump to steal fuel.

Probably just a bunch of material science samples DARPA doesn't want anyone else to know about for the next couple decades.

... Totally forgot to come back to this thread when they passed the two year point. Which they did.

I just hope it's not the spacecraft malfunctioning.
