US launched a spy satellite.
18:00

On May 1, 2017 at 11:15 UTC the “Falcon-9” rocket-carrier was launched from Cape Canaveral launch site of US Air Force. The launch was performed by SpaceX company supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. The rocket orbited the NROL-76 classified satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office. The NROL (National Reconnaissance Office Launch) abbreviation is used to identify classified satellites operated by the United States National Reconnaissance Office. The nature of the payload is not officially reported. It is said only that the satellite is intended for the timely detection of potential threats to the national interests of the United States. The “Falcon” rocket landed around nine minutes after liftoff, settling on the LZ-1 concrete pad of the Kennedy Space Centre around 15 kilometers south of where the “Falcon-9” took off. SpaceX intends to inspect the rocket, which was an all-new vehicle, and ready it for another mission.
