SpaceX to launch top-secret Zuma Sunday

SpaceX is scheduled to launch an undisclosed national security payload on Sunday night. The two-hour launch window begins at 8 p.m.

The new nine-engine rocket will launch from pad 39A and will take the secret payload to a low orbit.

While it isn't exactly clear what the Zuma mission is or precisely who it's for, we do have some clues.

According to Space.com, the launch will involve a re-entry attempt by the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket at Cape Canaveral's Landing Zone 1 - SpaceX has pulled off 20 such re-entries previously.

SpaceX tweeted that weather conditions are now 80 per cent favourable for Monday, and that it's completed yet more pre-launch testing, so all looks as good to go on paper as firing a giant canister of rocket fuel and secret technology into the sky can be. (SpaceX has had 17 consecutive successful landings, so they're getting pretty good at this).

"The U.S. government asked the aerospace and defense company Northrop Grumman to procure a launch vehicle, in this case the Falcon 9, for the Zuma launch", a company spokesperson said in November. SpaceX is expected to cut off its popular live stream early to hide the spacecraft's final destination.
