US Space Force data reveals Chinese mystery plane released object in orbit
The Chinese reusable spaceplane has remained in orbit for over 90 days
By Peter Aitken | Fox News

  The U.S. Space Force this week detected a Chinese reusable spaceplane releasing an object in orbit, officials revealed Friday.

China launched its experimental reusable rocket on Aug. 4 and kept it in orbit for 90 days. U.S. officials revealed that space tracking data identified a second object in a similar orbit to the Chinese craft — the nature of which remains unknown.

The U.S. Space Force’s 18th Space Defense Squadron determined the object is likely in "very close" proximity to the Chinese craft at a distance of less than 200 meters, according to Orbital Focus. The object may have separated out in the week prior to its detection on Monday.

Additionally, the Chinese released no information or statement on the mission since its initial launch, Space News reported. How long the vessel will remain in orbit is also unknown.

The U.S. government regularly struggles to identify flying objects: The Office of the Director of National Intelligence was only able to close out half of the 366 unidentified flying object sightings recorded in 2021.

However, Daily Mail senior reporter Josh Boswell told Tucker Carlson that a good portion of those unexplained cases may end up being Chinese drones.
