"Three, two, one, ignition and liftoff", said a SpaceX commentator as the Falcon 9 rocket launched under cover of darkness from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 8:00 pm (0100 GMT Monday).

Zuma is believed to have failed to separate from the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket, and broken up in the air or fallen into the sea.

The billion-dollar satellite is now assumed to be "a write-off", one of the officials said.

At Pad 39A, where Saturn V rockets and space shuttles launched, the first SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy rocket is standing tall on the pad, where the commercial company's team was scheduled to perform a "static fire" test Thursday.

Photos and video showed the rocket spectacularly lighting up Florida skies, but the position of its orbit was not revealed.

However, SpaceX never officially confirmed the success of the mission.

In the United States started the investigation, but so far there is no evidence of sabotage or any other intervention.

Space Exploration Technologies Corp, led by entrepreneur Elon Musk, launched its first satellite for the USA military with its Falcon 9 rocket in May of a year ago. SpaceX isn't commenting on the allegedly failed mission, however.
