SpaceX set to launch world's most powerful rocket by January end

Watch Elon Musk’s SpaceX launch the classified payload for the U.S. government referred to by code name Zuma
Meanwhile, SpaceX ended its launch commentary five minutes into the flight due to the classified nature of the USA satellite.
The payload will be delivered to low Earth orbit, per the mission parameters, but we don't know anything else about its objective, design, or intended mission, because it's all classified.
- SpaceX's first launch of the year - a secret satellite codenamed Zuma - lit up the Florida sky Sunday evening, putting on a dramatic show in the process.
And SpaceX's launch last May of a spy satellite was disclosed as a mission for the National Reconnaissance Office, even though the NRO was concerned enough about secrecy to request that SpaceX cut off launch coverage 2 minutes and 48 seconds after liftoff.
Falcon 9 successfully took off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, with a two-hour primary launch window opening on January 7 at 8:00 p.m. But the company continued to broadcast the return of the first-stage booster to Cape Canaveral, where it landed upright as part of a recycling effort. SpaceX had tried to launch Zuma multiple times at the end of 2017, but weather conditions and problems with the Falcon 9 rocket nose cone caused delays.
Another highly anticipated SpaceX launch will feature the world's most powerful operational rocket named Falcon Heavy.
