    I wouldn't get really hung up on that. It is just a misplaced choice of words in a sentence. But funnily the caption for that picture states, "prepares to launch' although that picture is a touch down shot of the landing :)

    Perhaps it's a really a cluster of small satellites purposed to help Tesla owners find parking spots in release 9.0.

    Wait... a declared "secret" launch for the National Reconnaissance Office just might be a (gasp!) spy satellite?! Who could have ever guessed such a thing?! :rolleyes:

    Not surprising that immigrant Musk would be in charge of a spy satellite called Falcon 9 and the article is wrong. It's not the first.I have spotted Falcons 1-8 on several nights here in Arizona. Another example of why the President wants to stop immigration. When the great, big, beautiful wall of Mexico is completed we also need one for the East Coast. South Africans are coming here in droves.

    I came in via the West Coast, so going to need a Pacific Coast Wall as well... and one around Hawaii!
