revolutionize space technology. >> stage one. >> reporter: the rocket's first stage returned to earth, so it could be used again. the second stage carried the satellite toward what was supposed to be a low-earth orbit, from which it could carry out its intelligence mission. spacex released a statement saying, "after review of all data to date, falcon 9 did everything correctly on sunday night." but northrup grumman, which made the zuma satellite, remained silent, saying it could not comment on a classified mission. it appears the satellite failed to separate from the rocket's second stage. an airline pilot took this picture of what is believed to be the second stage over africa as it descended toward earth, presumably taking the satellite with it. the spiral effect is created by venting fuel. zuma's mission remains a secret, so we don't know the intelligence central yaw of what was lost or how much money it cost. jeff? >> glor: david martin, thanks

6:43 pm
introduced a bill that would notify consumingers sooner and protect them longer after a breech. what happened to all those proposals? >> i would say mainly the reason is that corporations, credit reporting agencies are uninterested, well, let me put it another way, they oppose the idea of having more regulation that would protect the data. >> reporter: at least one republican senator john thune told us if congress is going the make fix, they shouldn't rush into something just for the sake of appearances. they should make sure those fixes are going to work. meanwhile, equifax told us it is making data security improvements and accountability measures. jeff? >> glor: anna werner in washington, d.c., an narcotic thank you. now to some other stories we're following in the evening news feed. president trump's one-time chief strategist is out of a job again. steve bannon stepped down today as executive chairman of breitbart news. bannon has been taking heat since he was quoted as
