US secretly launches satellite from ISS

Washington, Jul 1 (UNI/Sputnik) The United States has secretly launched a satellite from the International Space Station (ISS), according the space-track.org website, citing American Air Force data.
The device, cataloged as BD-28, was launched into orbit from the ISS. The details on when and how it happened were not officially reported. Usually, satellites from the US segment of the ISS are launched from platforms that are moved outside the station by manipulators.
American astronomer from the Center for Astrophysics Jonathan McDowell suggested on Twitter that the satellite may belong to a private US company that does not want to attract attention to its activities.
