U.S. space forces have launched the first satellite into orbit

Created in December last year, the U.S. Space Force launched its first satellite into orbit using a United Launch Alliance launch vehicle. The launch proceeded normally, except for a slight malfunction at the launch.

The satellite, developed by Lockheed Martin, is designed to provide secure communications channels for the U.S. Army, Aviation and Navy. The first vehicles of this series were launched between 2010 and 2019 using an Atlas V rocket. This is the 83rd launch. The problem at the launch in question is a minor malfunction of the hydraulics in the pump control unit.

The U.S. space force is a newly created type of military force that is designed to provide the United States with an advantage in space. Initially, its mission was to control communications satellites from the Department of Defense, provide continuous communication and air surveillance, and primarily ballistic missiles for potential adversaries.
