SpaceX successfully sent something into space for the U.S. government, and that may be all we'll ever know about the so-called "Zuma" mission that Elon Musk's commercial space company completed from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida Sunday evening.

After a record 18 launches in 2017, this mission will be SpaceX's first flight of the new year. Aside from its name, little is known about the payload. SpaceX landed the rocket's first stage for reuse in a future launch, a key step in its goal to drive down the cost of access to space.

"As a company, Northrop Grumman realises this is a monumental responsibility and we have taken great care to ensure the most affordable and lowest risk scenario for Zuma", Mr Rains said, declining to comment on the nature of the payload.

Aerospace and defense company Northrop Grumman was responsible for securing SpaceX's launch services for the Zuma mission.
