WATCH REPLAY: A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched the Bangabandhu Satellite-1 into orbit at 4:14 p.m. from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched the Bangabandhu Satellite-1 into orbit at 4:14 p.m. from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The SpaceX launch of Bangabandhu Satellite-1 was scrubbed on Thursday from Launch Complex 39A.

Bangabandhu Satellite-1 will be deployed into a geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) approximately 33 minutes after launch.

The Bangabandhu Satellite-1 mission will be the first to utilize Falcon 9 Block 5, the final substantial upgrade to SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle. Falcon 9 Block 5 is designed to be capable of 10 or more flights with very limited refurbishment as SpaceX continues to strive for rapid reusability and extremely high reliability.

Following stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
