NROL-32 Launch: A Victory For Space Transparency

The NROL-32 launch was unclassified.  The launch time was announced and the mission was self-identified as a NRO payload.  Also, the launch vehicle was NRO identified as supporting their mission as was the launch site.

You would think some kudos would be thrown the NRO’s way for this effort at space transparency, which is one of the stated goals of U.S. Space Policy.

Granted, the payload’s capabilities and the mission are classified, but that’s the nature of the work.

How many Russian or Chinese national security payloads are self-identified? Anyone, anyone?  Bueller?  Bueller?

Discuss amongst yourselves.
