SpaceX launches secret satellite tv for pc on first flight of yr

Yet SpaceX seems confident that it played its part in the Zuma mission well, and the company does not foresee this mission disrupting its schedule.

Citing government and industry officials who were briefed on the mission, the Wall Street Journal that the satellite did not separate as intended after the firing of the rocket's second stage. It is not as powerful as the Saturn V, the rocket which propelled astronauts into space for the 1960's and 1970's Apollo missions, but it is lighter and more efficient.

Company President Gwynne Shotwell said the Falcon 9 rocket "did everything correctly" Sunday night and suggestions otherwise are "categorically false".

Northrop Grumman Corp, the company which made the satellite (and also selected SpaceX for the launch) refused to comment since all the information related to it is classified. "However, at the moment the data metrics indicate that the Falcon 9 performs its task formally", - said the representative of SpaceX, James Gleason.

Northrup Grumman, the maker of the payload, said it was for the United States government and would be delivered to low-Earth orbit, but offered no other details. The spokesman for the corporation said that the company isn't at liberty to comment on a classified mission.




"The most important issue here is whether the Pentagon will rethink its reliability as a provider of launch services", said Thompson, whose think tank receives funding from Boeing and Lockheed. However, SpaceX chose to delay the launch to deal with some issues regarding the payload fairing (nose cone).

SpaceX has pushed back an historic test of the Falcon Heavy, the world's largest rocket.

On launch day, safely tucked away in a protective payload fairing will be Musk's 2008 Tesla Roadster, an all-electric sports vehicle that boosted his energy company during its formative years.
