ZUMA Mission

    roidroidMonth ago

    The government has done this _"oh no my new satellite didn't reach orbit"_ trick before. Back in 1990 a spy satellite called *Misty* was launched via Space Shuttle, and was then claimed to have not reached orbit & burned up on re-entry. But satellite spotters have seen the satellite up there since, and declassified NRO databases show the satellite as active. They are stealth satellites, designed to be very hard to see. They've probably improved the stealth in the 3 decades since Misty, i doubt it'll be so easy thesedays for amateurs to spot them. MReporterr _Covert Cabal_ has an interesting 10min video about all of it, titled *"Is Zuma Spy Sat Operational?"*

    Nobody knows... all we know is, it was a government contract, and not by some private company. Also the "thing" inside, was built by Northrop Grumman, and had a cost north of $3.5 billion. Its almost certain that this was a spy satellite, but we will never know for sure.

    Weird. Is just me, or was there a completely different atmosphere for this classified mission?

    Falcon 9 preformed flawlessly in this mission, the reason why the ZUMA mission failed is because the Northrop Grumman made Payload adapter failed to function... so blame Northrop Grumman not SpaceX

  8. roidroid

    roidroidMonth ago

    They've done this trick before with the "Misty" spy satellite in 1990. It was claimed that it failed to reach orbit, but amateur satellite trackers have spotted it afterwards, and the satellite is categorized as active in unclassified NRO docs. In the 3 decades since, i'm sure they're improved the stealth.

  9. SuperGeronimo999

    SuperGeronimo9994 months ago

    What if it worked, and this is just a cover up to forget about this spy satellite? Someone has to be blamed, and its not Space-X, after all they don't want to take it down, and risk future launches.

    Have you guys considered putting enough extra fuel in the 2nd stage so that once the payload is in orbit you can deorbit the 2nd stage to help reduce keslar syndrome until you figure out how to reuse it?

    WTF happened here? Massive pause before 2nd stage confirmation and it just feels like no-one is sure it actually worked (later reports say it didn't) then it takes like 2 mins from re-entry to landing? C'mon no amount of thrust is gonna slow down a rocket falling that quick to land like it did. It was at night to hide shit and this is just unbelievable...in the worst way. Wake up people!!!

    Huh, mission seemed to be a success. So the fairing deployed, how is this a failure? If Zuma is still in orbit and somehow broken can't they just repair it or recover it? And if Zuma isn't in orbit, what happened because in the video the fairing deployed :$

  59. Doug Gwyn

    Doug GwynYear ago

    How are they supposed to repair or recover it? Evidently the fairing deployed on schedule, but something went wrong with the payload release and the skimp evidence released to the public suggests that the payload got deorbited when the second stage did.

  60. Mark Zaikov

    Mark ZaikovYear ago

    It's clearly a success. The government can't even answer straightly, they keep redirecting and avoiding it. And notice, we still haven't heard that much about SpaceX about this topic, but they assured that the launch went well. Maybe someone's trying to keep them silent hence the classified payload.

    So for the general public that doesn’t understand rockets. When the payload is departed, the second stage is “shot” back to earth to burn up when it comes back to earth. If the payload has not separated then everything is burns up.
