Loss of government spy satellite wasn’t SpaceX’s fault, according to new probe

Earlier this year, SpaceX helped the US government send a spy satellite into orbit. The launch was somewhat hush-hush, at least in terms of how much SpaceX was allowed to talk about it, but it’s not the first time the company has carried out such tasks for government agencies. However, this time things went a bit sideways and the satellite ended up plummeting back through Earth’s atmosphere, completely destroying it in the inferno of reentry. SpaceX denied being at fault and now a new report seems to support its stance.
