Space X to launch rocket carrying a vehicle to orbit Mars

To add to the mystery status of Zuma mission, the satellite is still categorized as a payload by the US space-based surveillance system.

SpaceX's new, powerful rocket, the Falcon Heavy, is at its launch pad at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, awaiting an engine test-firing.The California-based company aims to launch the Heavy by month's end.

What makes things tricky is the fact that the satellite failed to achieve orbit, reportedly burning up in the earth's atmosphere.

"We have chose to stand down and take a closer look at data from recent fairing testing for another customer", said SpaceX communications director John Taylor at the time.

"For clarity: after reviewing of all data to date, Falcon 9 did everything correctly on Sunday night". If additional reviews uncover any problems, she said, "we will report it immediately". The company has already signed contracts to launch commercial missions on the three-core rocket - if the test fire and demonstration flight are successful. "Information published that is contrary to this statement is categorically false".

SpaceX and Northrop Grumman have refused to address rumors that all may not be well with the classified "Zuma" satellite launched on Monday.

"We do know that aerospace and defense company Northrop Grumman procured Zuma's launch atop a Falcon 9 for the USA government - but we don't know which agency will operate the satellite, or if its mission is civilian or military".

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.

Shotwell went on to state that this latest mishap will have no bearing on future SpaceX launches, and that Falcon Heavy is being prepped for its maiden flight. The spokesman for the corporation said that the company isn't at liberty to comment on a classified mission.
