Mysterious SpaceX Zuma Launch Delayed Until Further Notice.

SpaceX has delayed the Zuma mission until further notice. On Thursday, SpaceX announced, “We have decided to stand down and take a closer look at data from recent fairing testing for another customer. Though we have preserved the range opportunity for tomorrow, we will take the time we need to complete the data review and will then confirm a new launch date.”. Since Thursday, SpaceX has not provided any further information regarding the delay which is not surprising with the secrecy of the payload.
