A Falcon 9 launched the second set of reconnaissance satellites for an NRO constellation June 28. The rocket lifted off from Vandenberg Space Force Base at 11:14 pm EDT (0314 GMT June 29) and deployed an undisclosed number of satellites on the NROL-186 mission. The launch came just over a month after the first launch of those satellites on another Falcon 9. About half a dozen launches are scheduled for this year to deploy the satellites, developed by SpaceX and Northrop Grumman, with more launches planned through 2028.
