    Default SpaceX (Elon Musk) finally gets first US military Contract NROL-76 NRO

    With the latest flight NROL-76 of a Falcon9 SpaceX launched a secret Spy Satellite for the NRO. The National Reconnaissance Office is the Military Secret Service. Its an Agency of the United States Department of Defence.

    The NRO already confirmed they have flights booked with SpaceX. Plural, at least two.

    The broadcast of the Launch was interupted after a few minutes due to secrecy. Nothing is known of the Cargo. But one can speculate since Ball Aerospace booked the Rocket and not the NRO directly. Ball Aerospace is working really Close with the NRO. And they are well known for their Expertise in Optical and Radar Satellite Surveillance and production. SpaceX got 100 Million Dollars for the Launch.

    Mission Badge:

    Not one Word of the Cargo in the Mission Overview:


    At least Elon Musk is now where he always wanted to be with SpaceX. Working for the Military Industrial Complex and getting a Piece of the real Cake.

    After delivering the Secret Spy Satellite in Orbit the first Stage returned to Earth nicely:

    First we have the Latin which few read, then we have the change from Eagle to Dragon of Hell. Very appropriate for telling who is behind all this. As for multistage rockets, in an age of anti-gravitational flight which can drop off satellites at any height possibly within minutes or seconds, what is the air pollution all about?
