SpaceX was finally successful in launching its super-secret NROL-76 US military satellite from Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
According to CEO Elon Musk, there were high chances of this launch also getting called off due to high altitude wind velocity conditions and the impact it could have had on the payload of the spacecraft.
SpaceX's NROL-76 mission, which marks the firm's first major contract with the US military, is highly classified in nature.
Keeping in tune with the National Reconnaissance Organization (NRO) missions before, the nature of this mission and its target orbit are well guarded secrets. It will have no video coverage for public viewing, apart from the footage that SpaceX has already shared.
