The Zuma had repeated launch delays since November.

Its mission is a mystery, but it has been identified as a government payload managed by Northrop Grumman, according to Florida Today.

Later this month, the company is planning a test flight for what will be the world’s most powerful rocket. SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk said that at 2,500 tons of thrust, the Falcon Heavy is equal to 18 Boeing 747 aircraft at full throttle.
