US taxpayers may end up paying for the missing secret satellite launched by SpaceX that crashed into the ocean earlier this month. it was part of a classified U.S. government mission called Zuma.
The CEO of Iridium has tweeted (as an industry insider) believes that SpaceX was not at fault for the loss of the secret Zuma satellite.
No. Process of elimination. I believe SpaceX statements, and have my own beliefs about what probably happened. Just find it sloppy and lazy to blame SpaceX when others more likely at fault (but won’t/can’t talk).
