No landing — yet — for mystery space plane

It looks a lot like a tiny version of the space shuttle, and it’s been in space for months.
But the X-37B, a robotic space plane built by Boeing in Huntington Beach, won’t be coming home just yet.
Despite earlier reports that the mysterious craft would land this week at Vandenberg Air
Force Base, its flight — already nine months long — is being extended, Air Force officials said Tuesday.
