Bangladesh Launches its First Satellite into Space

The rocket, which is carrying a satellite for Bangladesh into orbit, was scheduled to blast off from launch pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center Thursday, but the planned launch was scrubbed.

The Bangabandhu-1 was deployed in orbit around half an hour after the launch on a SpaceX rocket from the United States early on Saturday.

The rocket, which is part of the Falcon 9's block 5, represents the company's assumed final version of its nine-engine workhorse of a rocket.

More Aussie MPs hit by dual citizenship law
The decision could have serious ramifications on another four dual-citizen MPs who were relying on the same defence as Gallagher. Labor senator Katy Gallagher has been ruled ineligible to sit in parliament by the High Court on Wednesday.

A two-hour backup launch window opens Saturday at 4:15 p.m.

According to the company, the Block 5 variation of the Falcon 9 can safely be re-flown as many as 10 times - not including refurbishment between launches. SpaceX CEO and Founder Elon Musk spoke to his anxieties about the launch. As the second stage continued to power Bangabandhu-1 to a high geostationary transfer orbit, the first stage maneuvered its way back to Earth, pulling off a pinpoint touchdown on a robotic SpaceX "drone ship" stationed in the Atlantic Ocean almost 400 miles (630 kilometers) southeast of KSC. After its return to land, it's extremely likely that SpaceX will choose to transport the rocket back to either Hawthorne or McGregor to conduct an extremely thorough teardown analysis of the booster, checking to ensure that each component and system made it through a high-energy reentry with minimal impact. They will eventually be used to fly astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS).

"That would be exciting", Musk said in reference to driving down the cost of launching to space during a press call Thursday. Pacific time, lofting a satellite for Bangladesh.

SpaceX hasn't released official specifications for its Block 5 rockets yet, but it has shared some information about improvements to this generation's reusability and reliability.

This launch will carry into orbit the Bangabandhu Satellite-1, which will provide TV, internet and other telecom services to Bangladesh and the surrounding region.
