Submission + - Manned X37B version suggested at Space 2011 (suasnews.com) 1

garymortimer writes: "Many conspiracy theorists already believe this can happen.

London, Oct 11 A Boeing chief has suggested that the company’s mysterious unmanned space-plane, called X-37B, developed for the US Air Force, could be scaled up and modified to carry astronauts.

The company’s X-37B project chief Art Grantz revealed that at least two more versions of the 9-metre long space-plane are under investigation – one of which involves adding a crew to a much-enlarged version of the space drone, New Scientist reported.

If built, the new version would give the US back its ability to shuttle people to the International Space Station."
