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

Meanwhile, SpaceX ended its launch commentary five minutes into the flight due to the classified nature of the US satellite.

As usual, SpaceX once again landed Falcon 9's first stage back to Earth during Sunday's mission.

Last year was a banner year for SpaceX, with 18 launches. SpaceX has also flown other sensitive cargo for the US, including the Air Force's X-37B spaceplane.

Northrop shares were virtually unchanged at 308.30 on the stock market today. The news has been announced by founder Elon Musk.

SpaceX successfully launched the mysterious Zuma spacecraft at 8.00pm EST from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida after numerous delays.

The same report cites a theory claiming the Zuma mission is connected to a previous one launched by SpaceX in May 2017 for the National Reconnaissance Office.

Up next, SpaceX is set to launch it's Falcon Heavy rocket for the first time at the end of the month, carrying a Tesla vehicle as its first payload as the company looks at commercial and government launches later this year, and even missions to the moon and Mars eventually. Zuma will be the first before the company premiers its new Falcon Heavy rocket, sometime later in January.

Another highly anticipated SpaceX launch will feature the world's most powerful operational rocket named Falcon Heavy.
