Super Secret Zuma launch

Enjoyed yesterday’s broadcast of the ultra-super-secret Zuma launch:

Beautiful launch. Perfect return.

We were never made privy to what the super-secret military satellite was, but I didn’t really care that much.  I just love a good launch.  Prefer the daytime ones when you can see lots more detail, but since this was a super-secret military launch I was watching on public internet streaming, I understood the discretion of launching at night so that nobody could miss it lighting up the night sky.

So, imagine my curiosity when I saw this headline this morning:

It’s not official, but sources say the secretive Zuma satellite was lost

My first, my only, and my official response is, “yeah, sure it is”.
