Sierra Nevada Corp Mini Space Shuttle Will Deliver Military Supplies..

The Pentagon has signed an agreement with Sierra Space, developer of the Dream Chaser shuttle, to develop the glide-like spacecraft for military transport missions. The goal is to develop a craft that can transport people or cargo anywhere on Earth or to some locations in space within three hours.

While the Dream Chaser is limited in how much cargo it can transport, the procedures and tactics the two parties work out will likely become the foundation of military space transport for decades to come.
