SpaceX has successfully launched its first mission of the year.
Zuma is a secretive spacecraft commissioned by the U.S. government. Little is known about the purpose, design, or intended mission of the spacecraft, because it’s all classified. What we do know is that SpaceX launched Zuma without incident from its facility at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
The launch also included a recovery of the first stage booster used with the Falcon 9. SpaceX will launch a massive heavy-duty rocket for the first time ever in 2018.
