Launch vehicle Falcon 9 with NROL-76 satellite of the US National Aerospace Intelligence Agency started from the cosmodrome at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The first stage of the rocket successfully separated and returned to the ground, landing in the landing zone 1 (LZ-1). Falcon 9 started from the LC-39 complex in the territory of the Kennedy Space Center. It was with him that the world's most powerful Saturn V rockets were launched in the framework of the Apollo program. On April 30, the launch was canceled less than 60 seconds before the start due to a problem with the sensor. NROL-76, whose appointment is not disclosed, belongs to the National Aerospace Intelligence Agency of the United States. SpaceX first launched the launch for the Space Intelligence Service.
