US launches secret satellite into space
Cape Canaveral: A new US clandestine satellite has rocketed into space.
An unmanned Delta IV-Heavy rocket lifted off today morning from Cape Canaveral, Florida. It carried a satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office.
The office is keeping quiet about the satellite`s purpose.
This was the second rocket launch for the NRO in the last two weeks. An Atlas V rocket carrying another secret satellite was launched June 20.
Today`s launch was delayed a day because of concerns about weather conditions caused by Tropical Storm Debby earlier in the week. The launch was delayed three hours for several technical issues with a sticky valve.
