The launch was the first SpaceX launch of 2018, reports CNBC. Because its payload was classified as a U.S. government secret, it’s not known what exactly the rocket’s payload was beyond its “Zuma” name. Zuma launched aboard one of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rockets from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida before the Falcon 9 landed back at the base.
