Top Secret Satellite

I was reading up on some space news and read about the launch a huge “test” payload into geosynchronous orbit.

Although it has no on-orbit functions, the DemoSat payload will then be carried into geosynchronous orbit and cast off about 5.8 hours after launch.

Since you can’t very well hide the launch of a rocket that large, just say that it is a test payload. The rocket (Delta 4 Heavy) itself is pretty cool, with a huge first stage and two giant boosters. I wish I could make a model of one of those.
