SpaceX successfully launches satellite with new upgraded 'Block 5' Falcon 9 rocket

Stepping into the future

The big players of the club are United States with 803, Russian Federation: 142, China: 204 and other: 589, according to the data updated past year by Union of Concerned Scientists. He has said that his goal is to launch the same booster twice within 24 hours.

It is created to be capable of 10 or more flights with very limited refurbishment as SpaceX continues to strive for rapid reusability and extremely high reliability, according to SpaceX's news release.

Reusing the rockets is a major cost-saving step for space travel. The team delayed the launch for a day; they originally scheduled the launch for Thursday, May 10, 2018. Friday's second attempt by SpaceX, formally known as Space Exploration Technologies, appeared to have gone off without a hitch.

The landing was the first one for the Block 5 version, but the 25th for a Falcon 9 rocket with an orbital launch.

SpaceX has signed a United States dollars 2.6 billion contract with the NASA to complete development of Crew Dragon, a capsule to ferry astronauts to and from the International Space Station. NASA requires seven successful flights before the new rocket receives final certification for a manned mission.

SpaceX now dominates the global market of orbital rocket launches, which the U.S. had seceded to Russian Federation and Europe until a year ago. The company will take apart the rocket now that it has landed; the inspection will confirm that SpaceX doesn't have it take it apart after every launch.

Block 5 simply concretes SpaceX's business case.

To deploy the satellite to its geostationary orbit, SpaceX separated it from the second stage booster some 33 minutes after the launch from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida on Friday afternoon (local time).

"Today is a very delightful and glorious day for our motherland, Bangladesh, and Bangalee nation", she said.

"With the launch of Bangabandhu-1, we are hoisting our national flag into space". C- band covers Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and portions of Kazakhstan.

"The satellite will also provide broadband connectivity to rural areas throughout the country", said a SpaceX statement, noting that the mission is expected to last at least 15 years. On the other hand, Bangladesh can earn foreign currency by renting the Bangabandhu-1 transponders to other countries.

Greeting the country's people on the occasion of launching of Bangabandhu-1, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said another milestone has been set with its launching in Bangladesh's continuous march forward.
