SpaceX Launches Secretive Zuma Mission

SpaceX on Sunday i.e., 07/01/2018 blasted off a secretive U.S. government payload known as Zuma, a mission whose nature and the agency behind it remains a mystery.
"Three, two, one, ignition and liftoff," said a SpaceX commentator as the Falcon 9 rocket launched under cover of darkness from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 8:00 p.m. (0100 GMT Monday).
The launch was initially supposed to take place in November but was postponed so the California-based company could take a closer look at potential problems with the fairing, or the nose cone part of the rocket that protects the payload.
