  • SpaceX PAZ Starlink Falcon 9

Liftoff occurred at 4:14 p.m. EDT and Bangabandhu Satellite-1 was deployed into a geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) approximately 33 minutes after launch.

SpaceX had previously planned to launch the satellite using Falcon-9 rockets on 16 December, 2017, but the launch was postponed due to damage from hurricane Irma. Falcon 9 Block 5 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.

SpaceX, a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company, confirmed the rockets landing on a drone ship named "Of Course I Still Love You".

The updated SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has made his debut launch in Florida.

SpaceX boss Elon Musk said Block 5 will be the last major upgrade to the Falcon series, and any changes in future will be incidental and minor.

The successful launch of the Block-5 takes the company one step closer to satisfying NASA regulations for carrying astronauts to the International Space Station.

The smart displays will also be handy with Google Maps, video calls and pulling up footage from in-home security cameras. As with any other Google Assistant smart device, the Smart Display can understand the same voice commands and actions.

For these missions, the Falcon 9 must be certified as man-rated. The company won't allow for humans onboard until it's flown seven successful launches, but with the rate of SpaceX's overall launch and return success, those seven successful launches could happen sooner than expected.

The historic event took place at 2:14am Bangladesh time today when the country's first geostationary communication satellite started its voyage towards orbit from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, the USA. All eyes were on the spacecraft because it will be the first flight of the newest version of the Falcon 9.

Mahmood said after completing and traveling several processes, few more days will be required to tame the satellite at its Gazipur's Joydebpur and Rangamati's Betbunia ground stations. He also said that he hopes to demonstrate the same rocket to be re-launched in a span of 24 hours.

"Once Bangabandhu Satellite-1 is operational, Bangladesh will be autonomous in terms of telecommunications and broadcasting services, being able to offer communications services to many foreign countries, such as Nepal, Myanmar or Bhutan under its coverage area", stated Thales Alenia Space representatives. The satellite will provide TV, internet and other telecom services to Bangladesh and the surrounding region.
