The secret USA government Zuma satellite, and little information about what happened to it has been released.

Matt Desch, the chief executive officer of Iridium, a communications satellite company that is one of SpaceX's biggest customers, said in an interview that he "absolutely" had full confidence in SpaceX and that he had no qualms with proceeding with the four launches Iridium has on the Falcon 9 this year.

The launch window January 30 opens at 4:23 p.m. EST (2123 GMT) and extends for 134 minutes.

In the meantime, Falcon Heavy, like its smaller cousin the Falcon 9, will advance SpaceX's goal of cutting launch costs by reusing rockets.

Falcon Heavy has been rolled out to launchpad LC-39A for a static fire later this week, to be followed shortly thereafter by its maiden flight.

The company's live webcast did not show video coverage of the Zuma spacecraft after it separated from the first stage of the rocket, but confirmed that the fairings deployed and the payload was well on its way to low-Earth orbit. Musk has said BFR could be used for missions ranging from taking satellites to low-Earth orbit to colonizing Mars. After the demonstration launch, SpaceX will attempt to land all three engine cores - two on land-based pads and one on a sea-based droneship - in a feat Musk has described as a type of "synchronized aerial ballet".

"They know the Falcon 9 well", said Larson, who formerly worked at SpaceX and was a senior advisor for space and innovation in the Obama administration. By that point, SpaceX had been flying its Falcon 9 rocket successfully, and the Air Force settled the case with SpaceX, eventually granting it the certification required for it to compete. However, SpaceX made a decision to delay the launch to deal with some issues regarding the payload fairing (nose cone).

According to Shotwell, "Since the data reviewed so far indicates that no design, operational or other changes are needed, we do not anticipate any impact on the upcoming launch schedule". To viewers of the live stream, the launch seemed like a success. A spokesperson for National Reconnaissance Office, which owns the US government's spy satellite fleet, said Zuma did not belong to that organization.

The Falcon 9 rocket launched as scheduled on January 7 and the first stage of the booster landed in SpaceX's Cape Canaveral facility.

The NRO and military agencies typically acknowledge their ownership of clandestine satellites, even if details about their missions remain under a shroud of secrecy. The satellite for the secret mission was built by Northrop Grumman Corp.

SpaceX has launched national security payloads in the past, including a spy satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office, and an X-37B space plane for the US Air Force. Rumours have arisen that the mission was carrying a spy satellite of Pentagon and that it even had the capability to fix other satellites.
