Very interesting.  This doc says that Orbital is looking at SLC 2 for a Taurus 2 Vandenberg launch site.  I wonder if that means SLC 2W, which will still be an active Delta 2 launch facility for another year at least, or nearby SLC 2E, the old Thor Agena/Ablestar/Delta pad that hasn't seen a launch since 1972.

Yes, very interesting.

So no Delta-7320H?

NASA managers Thursday decided to give engineers additional time to assess external tank cracks and repair scenarios, ruling out an early February launch for the shuttle Discovery. The next shuttle launch window opens Feb. 27, but NASA is assessing whether it might be possible to move that up a few days.

I came upon mentioning the second spaceflight of OTV current year:
"...Space planes like the X-37B are highly versatile and their operational concepts necessarily a bit vague at this point. “You can put sensors in there, satellites in there,” Eric Sterner, from The Marshall Institute, said of the X-37. “You could stick munitions in there, provided they exist.” The Air Force is likely to discover more and more uses for the X-37 as it steadily increases the bot’s flying rate, from just one sortie last year to at least two in 2011..." Source
Can any confirm that ?

Orbcomm has contracted with LuxSpace of Luxembourg to launch two small AIS-equipped spacecraft this year, with the first two of its own second-generation satellites set for launch as piggyback payloads on a Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) Falcon 9 rocket also scheduled for launch this year.

The first two Orbcomm satellites are scheduled for launch as secondary passengers aboard a Falcon 9 rocket carrying an unmanned cargo vessel to the international space station. The station flies in an orbit with an inclination of 51.6 degrees.

Assuming a successful launch, now tentatively scheduled for this summer, a second Falcon 9, this time carrying at least eight Orbcomm satellites as the main payload, would be launched nine months later.

A third Falcon 9 rocket carrying the remaining satellites in the constellation would then occur later in 2012.
