So I have seen this on the media lately mentioned more than many other stories out there:
First off I am sure it was lost *wink *wink. Second if it was really destroyed they would even tell anymore. Third so who pays for it if it really was destroyed? The tax payer. I am sure they aren't a $19.95 piece either.A U.S. spy satellite that was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, aboard a SpaceX rocket on Sunday failed to reach orbit and is assumed to be a total loss, two U.S. officials briefed on the mission said on Monday.
The classified intelligence satellite, built by Northrop Grumman Corp, failed to separate from the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket and is assumed to have broken up or plunged into the sea, said the two officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The satellite is assumed to be "a write-off," one of the officials said.
