A rocket carrying a suspected spy satellite has launched from Cape Canaveral.

FOX's Eben Brown reports from Miami:

As we wait to resume human spaceflight missions from U.S. soil, the nation has been busy launching other things into space:

(United Launch Alliance) "Status check. Go Atlas. Go Centaur. Go NROL-61."

It's not NASA, but the U.S. government's National Reconnaissance Office. The rocket is contracted from United Launch Alliance, a subsidiary of Boeing and Lockheed Martin. The exact components and mission are classified. But it's hard to keep a rocket launch a secret.
