Posted: Sat, Jul 16, 2022, 11:14 AM ET (1514 GMT)
Rocket Lab launched a classified payload for the National Reconnaissance Office early Wednesday. The Electron rocket lifted off at 2:30 am EDT (0630 GMT) from the company's New Zealand launch site on the NROL-162 mission. Rocket Lab and the NRO declared the launch a success an hour later but provided few details about the mission. NROL-162 and NROL-199, another mission launching on an Electron later this month, are classified spy satellites that the NRO developed jointly with the Australian government.
