Mystery around United States military's secret satellite launch by SpaceX deepens

SpaceX launched a classified, for the USA government on Sunday ― and then something went wrong.

Meanwhile, the internet is speculating that the photo of an ethereal spiral in the night sky taken by Dutch pilot Peter Horstink might be the missing upper part of the Falcon 9 rocket. Since, the launching window is set to open on Jan 30 at 4:23 pm EST (2123 GMT) and continues to 134 minutes.

Technicians will fuel the satellite, named GovSat 1, with hydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide maneuvering propellant in the coming days, then close it up inside the Falcon 9's clamshell-like payload fairing.

Elon Musk has announced that the first flight of his company's "Falcon Heavy" rocket will carry a Tesla Roadster - touted as the quickest auto in the world with record-setting acceleration, range and performance - into Martian orbit. The company cheered a successful liftoff and then the touchdown of its first-stage booster back on land so that it could be flown again, a practice created to lower the cost of spaceflight. Later payload Zuma (USA 280) a command of the aerospace defense of North America (the addition is performed after at least one revolution of the spacecraft around the Earth, that does not preclude further Assembly of the device from orbit).

The NFL confirmed on Thursday it was examining the circumstances surrounding Gruden's appointment, ESPN reported. Running backs coach Jemal Singleton is reportedly joining the Oakland Raiders coaching staff.

"We're moving forward with plans for our next launch", he said.

SpaceX declined to comment on the particulars, but in a statement to HuffPost was adamant there was no failure on its end.

That would explain SpaceX's account of a ideal launch, while also squaring with the satellite is a total loss.

According to Shotwell, "Since the data reviewed so far indicates that no design, operational or other changes are needed, we do not anticipate any impact on the upcoming launch schedule".

Under mounting pressure from SpaceX, ULA's CEO Tory Bruno vowed to "literally transform" the company to compete - and he also continued to champion ULA's track record of successful launches of more than 100 in a row. Meanwhile, theories are emerging that the USA government-backed Zuma was a satellite meant to monitor or intercept nuclear activities by North Korea.

Company President Gwynne Shotwell said the Falcon 9 rocket "did everything correctly" Sunday night and suggestions otherwise are "categorically false". It was so shrouded in secrecy that the sponsoring government agency was not even identified, as is usually the case.

Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL), who previous flew into space in the 1980s aboard Columbia as a payload specialist, sided with SpaceX, stating, "The first statement by SpaceX was that the failure to achieve orbit was not theirs". There is no on-the-record confirmation of the success or failure of the mission. After several delays, the Zuma took off from the Space Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida last Sunday. On the other hand, SpaceX is also tight-lipped about the mission either.
