The world today got a first-hand view of a top-secret mission that blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida. 

Above is a video of today's liftoff of an unmanned, Air Force mini space shuttle. The X Dash 37B is about a quarter of the size of NASA's old space shuttles. 

It's reportedly a test-bed for advanced spy satellite sensors, but the military isn't saying anything about the shuttle's mission. We'll keep you posted.
