In August, SpaceX will launch into orbit an experimental Boeing X-37B

Company SpaceX will soon carry out its first contract for the U.S. air force. In August, SpaceX will launch into orbit Boeing X-37B — an unmanned orbital experimental plane.

Four previous times X-37B was delivered into orbit by launch vehicles Atlas 5 United Launch Alliance, so SpaceX is not just the first contract with the US air force, but another victory over the more famous and major competitor.

Note that the first public contract from the US air force SpaceX company made last year, but its launch is scheduled only for 2018. When he was awarded the current contract to launch the X-37B, known as the government did not always disclose such information immediately.
