SpaceX launches newly updated Falcon 9 rocket

May 12 is a red-letter day for Bangladesh when the country moved to a new era by launching its first "Bangabandhu-1" satellite. The Falcon Heavy successfully launched in February, and the Block 5 landed well today.

The launch was initially expected to take place on May 10, 2018, but due to triggering of the automatic abort switch, the launch was postponed at the last minute.

After stage separation, SpaceX will try to land the Falcon 9's first stage on its drone ship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Such activities are part of the company's efforts to develop fully and rapidly reusable rockets and spacecraft. SpaceX CEO and Founder Elon Musk spoke to his anxieties about the launch.

In the best director and best screenplay categories, there have been only four women among the 111 winners, according to AFP. Still, just three of the 21 films competing for the top Palme d'Or prize this year at Cannes are directed by women.

The Block 5's upgrades take another step in this direction.

The recoverable Block 5 booster is meant to be reused at least 10 times with minimal refurbishment involving flights, so allowing more typical rods at lower price tag - a secret into the SpaceX firm version.

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. As well as this increase was attained without a rise in mass, Musk included.

SpaceX has signed a 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.

SpaceX holds a multibillion-dollar agreement with NASA to offer such taxi solutions. The first crewed flights of the Block 5-Dragon system could come as early as this year, SpaceX representatives have said. NASA requires seven successful flights before the new rocket receives final certification for a manned mission. "This rocket is truly created to be- the intent is to be one of the most trusted rocket ever before constructed.". His goal is to eventually launch the same booster twice within 24 hours, drastically reducing costs. This satellite will go into Geostationary Transfer Orbit, and should provide broadcast and communications services to folks in Bangladesh.

Additionally, it will serve as an important source of income for Bangladesh, as we too will now be able to rent satellite services out to other countries.

The Falcon 9 Block 5 carried Bangladesh's first geostationary communications satellite toward orbit on Friday.
