BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – SpaceX Falcon 9 launched NROL-76 from the historic Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Monday morning.
The launch on Monday comes after Sunday’s launch was scrubbed due to a sensor issue that the launch conductor flagged with under one minute to go for launch.
The payload for the launch is being referred to as NROL-76 and is classified.
The NRO is known to survey potential threats to the United States such as tracking terrorists, monitor development of nuclear weapons in various countries and provide an early warning of a potential missile strike.
