SpaceX cut off its launch broadcast after confirming that the rocket's nose cone - the cause of a delay to a planned November launch - had separated a few minutes after the 8 p.m. ET blastoff from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Numerous sources point out to the fact that this mission was designed in orders via the government of the U.S. The Pentatonix has denied from providing any details regarding the same and the same response has been received from SpaceX.
Roughly a minute and a half into the launch, the rocket reached maximum dynamic pressure or max-Q. SpaceX landed the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station afterward.
After a record 18 launches in 2017, this mission will be SpaceX's first flight of the new year.
That is standard procedure for classified missions. But Sunday's launch is perhaps the company's most secretive yet.
SpaceX Says Falcon 9 Performed Nominally, But Zuma Payload May Have Failed
On Monday, rumors began swirling about a possible failure. "We cannot comment on classified missions". There is no indication of what agency will operate it. We don't even know exactly where Suma is in orbit.
The Falcon 9 first stage lands some seven minutes 53 seconds into the flight. Because of the nature of the mission, coverage and information regarding the progress of the rocket and its payload from then on was not disclosed.
The live webcast of the rocket launch by SpaceX did not continue to cover the Zuma post separation during the first stage.Читайте также: Ecopetrol activa plan de contingencia por atentados del ELN a oleoducto
The U.S. government's hush-hush Zuma satellite may have run into some serious problems during or shortly after its Sunday (Jan. 7) launch, according to media reports. Harvard-Smithsonian astronomer Jonathan McDowell noted on twitter that Space-Track.org did indeed catalogue the satellite. As it soared higher, a thinning atmosphere put less pressure on the rocket.
How it will work is passengers will take a large boat from a dock in New York City to a floating launchpad. "Consistent with SpaceX claim that rocket behaved correctly". Today, it was seen in a horizontal position suitable for static firing tests.
A military satellite launched by Elon Musk's Space Exploration Technologies Corp. hasn't been spotted in orbit by the U.S. Strategic Command, creating a mystery about the fate of the classified payload and doubts about whether the mission was a success.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
