US Air Force’s pilot-free X-37B spacecraft landed back on earth safely, which spent 780 days in orbit, landed safely at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on Sunday. It has been in space for nearly two years, breaking its record as the longest flight there.

The X-37b’s Orbital Test Vehicle 5 (OTV-5) mission ended with a smooth autonomous touchdown at the Shuttle Landing Facility of NASA’s Kennady Space Centre in Cape Canaveral, Florida at 3:51 am (07:51 GMT).

With the successful landing, OTV-5 broke the previous X-37N mission record of 718 days set by the OTV-4 mission in May 2017.
