A failed launch of SpaceX project Zuma has lead to the missing of most classified US spy satellite.

Read on Nexter the details and consequences of the mission.

Did Zuma actually fail?

Bussiness Insider reports, due to the failure of SpaceX’s secret Zuma, the classified US spy satellite is gone missing.

As SpaceX representer, James Gleeson, told BI, “We do not comment on missions of this nature, but as of right now reviews of the data indicate Falcon 9 performed nominally.”

Firstly, it was just a rumor that Zuma fell back and burnt in the Earth’s atmosphere, but, then, Wall Street Journal confirmed it.

The company started an investigation right after the incident, but at the moment there is no indication of “sabotage” or any other reason for failure.
According to Bloomberg, Zuma hasn’t been launched successfully because of “the second-stage booster section of the Falcon 9 failed”.

Zuma was lost and burned up in the atmosphere or just fell into the ocean. It might occur when the satellite is released at the wrong or is damaged.

The experts and participants of this highly classified mission are forbidden to reveal the details of the launch or the results of the analysis.

Moreover, SpaceX has censored the livestream of Zuma launch as it had done before with other classified projects.

We are currently waiting for SpaceX to comment more on this issue.
