TONIGHT BLACK FRIDAY: Top Secret ZUMA Payload Launches on SpaceX Rocket

Last month, there was a last-minute change to SpaceX’s launch schedule for November, with the code name ZUMA.

Founder Elon Musk's SpaceX launch of the ZUMA mission is scheduled now for tonight, Thursday, Nov. 16, between 8 p.m. EST and 10 p.m. EST (0100-0300 GMT).

UPDATE: Launch Scrubbed -- Postponed until Friday. The launch window opens at 8pm ET. No immediate reason was given for the delay.

UPDATE #2: Launch Scrubbed Again -- Postponed until Friday, Nov. 24, between 8 p.m. EST and 10 p.m. EST (0100-0300 GMT). Again, no immediate reason was given for the delay.

NOTE: Friday, Nov. 24 = Black Friday (See comments below)

SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket
Kennedy Space Center, Florida

Aerospace watchdog site -- which tracks commercial and government launches -- notes the ZUMA payload will be launched from a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the LC-39A launchpad at the Kennedy Space Center. The only information available concerning the ZUMA launch is that the payload belongs to Northrop Grumman, an aerospace and defense corporation. Some speculate that this could be a “black commercial” mission (a type of shadowy joint project between private commercial firms and government agencies) involving some new type of reconnaissance satellite.

The ZUMA Payload Type? Probably Not Vinyl

“Northrop Grumman realizes that this is monumental responsibility and have taken great care to ensure the most affordable and lowest risk scenario for Zuma,” Lon Rains, communications director for Northrop Grumman’s Space Systems Division, said in a statement. The Falcon 9 will deliver ZUMA to low-Earth orbit, an altitude about 1,240 miles (2,000 kilometers). No government agency has claimed the satellite going up tomorrow. The National Reconnaissance Office, which usually announces the launches of its spy spacecraft, said that ZUMA doesn’t belong to the agency.

More on the ZUMA Payload for SpaceX Rocket: Is There A Connection to "The Visitor"? (+ other very speculative theories. Note: ZUMA Payload launch occurs between the departure of "The Hitchhiker"/Harvest Moon and the arrival of "The Visitor"/Frost Moon.)

Also, more on "The Visitor" Is Scheduled to Arrive on December 1.

Ok, we know based on our original post on this last month, this is all a bit of stretch for a Neil Young news blog.

But consider...

Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, is an aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company founded by billionaire Elon Musk. Elon Musk is also the founder of Tesla, the electric car company following in the footsteps of entrepreneur Neil Young and his Linc-Volt hybrid project.

Note that Neil Young's newest album "Hitchhiker", contains a track titled "Captain Kennedy" about another seafaring explorer. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch from the Kennedy Space Center.

Of course, this all ties in nicely with Neil Young's new album "Hitchhiker" and it's extensive time travel themes. And recall, of course, that Neil renamed the band "The Rockets" as "Crazy Horse".

The November SpaceX’s launch also coincides with Neil's birthday.

ZUMA songs: (Thanks HtH!)

2. PARDON MY HEART references satellites;:
“It's a sad communication with little reason to believe
When one isn't giving and one pretends to receive.”

3. DANGER BIRD. Rockets are referred to as Birds and of course Danger Bird is a cut on ZUMA. But more important;y Neil alludes to the reusable nature of Musk’s rocket: “Danger bird, he flies alone. And he rides the wind back to his home.”

4. THROUGH MY SAILS appears to be an allusion to the launch of the satellite payload carried on ZUMA. perhaps the true mission of the satellite is hidden deep in the satellite’s programming, hidden from the satellite during its development and manufacture, but the satellite will become conscious and ultimately aware of this deceit by its creators.
“Still glaring from the city lights
Into paradise I soared
Unable to come down
For reasons I'd ignored
Total confusion

Note the "The Visitor's" message accompanying the NEW VIDEO: "Hitchhiker" by Neil Young. This video is labeled as "Black Balloon version".

Record Store Day's Black Friday celebration includes Neil Young's 1992 album, Harvest Moon, which will have a special double-LP vinyl release for its 25th anniversary.

November 24 = Black Friday
1992 album = 25th anniversary
Harvest Moon = ZUMA Payload
Young (5 letters) = Tesla (5 letters)
HitchHiker = The Visitor
Kennedy = Florida
SpaceX = Young = ZUMA
