For the first time since 2019, SpaceX launched Falcon Heavy, the most potent operational rocket in the world, launching a secret spacecraft as well as a microsatellite for the US Space Force into orbit.
The US Space Force and Elon Musk’s SpaceX enterprise are currently in constant communication.
The US Space Force, a branch of the US Department of Defense, recently granted SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket a transportation certificate.
This license will allow SpaceX to launch spy satellites made in the USA for use in covert operations.
Up until recently, the United States had contracted with Boeing and Lockheed to launch spy satellites.
SpaceX launched Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful operational rocket, for the first time since 2019, carrying a US Space Force microsatellite and a secret spacecraft into space.
After launch, Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters returned to Earth and successfully landed at Cape Canaveral Air Force Base in Florida.
There have been relatively few details revealed concerning the mission, known as USSF-44. An unnamed satellite and a microsatellite called TETRA-1 make up the two cargoes launched into orbit, according to information provided by the USA.
The US military has launched these satellites, which will be used to test the systems of future spacecraft.
