The rocket's payload, the Bangladeshi government's very first communications satellite, Bangabandhu-1, was set into Earth orbit at 4:47pm EDT, just 3 3 minutes after launch, based to SpaceX.

Elon Musk's fledgling aerospace company SpaceX has bounced back from its failure to launch this week, successfully launching its Falcon 9 rocket from Florida's Cape Canaveral yesterday.

SpaceX began a project to improve the Falcon-9 hardware according to NASA's instructions. The Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket launch is now scheduled for May 11, with a launch window that starts at 4:14 p.m. ET and ends at 6:21 p.m. ET.

"This rocket is really created to be - the intent is to be the most reliable rocket ever built". SpaceX plans to eventually phase out the vehicle - along with Dragon and the just-debuted Falcon Heavy rocket - in favor of the huge rocket-spaceship combo known as the BFR, which is now in development.

The upgraded rocket model ensures enhanced reusability and carried a Bangabandhu Satellite-1 into geostationary orbit.

The BFR will fly individuals and also freight to Mars, yet it will certainly likewise introduce satellites to Planet orbit, tidy up room scrap, lug travelers on superfast point-to-point journeys around Planet and also do whatever else SpaceX requires it to do, Musk has actually stated.

SpaceX is also hoping that simple reusability of the booster will allow quick turnarounds with the potential of launching a Falcon 9 rocket twice within a 24-hour period.
