SpaceX Is On The Right Track To Becoming The 3rd Biggest Private Tech Company In The US

The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has announced that the country's first satellite, Bangabandhu-1, will be launched on 10 May from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA by SpaceX. Nowadays, NASA sends astronauts to the International Space Station using Russia's Roscosmos space program.

SpaceX's YouTube live broadcast, embedded below, should begin about 20 minutes before launch. (Bangabandhu-1 weighs 7,700 pounds).

Prior to obtaining "Developing Country" status, Bangladesh was considered a "Least Developed Country" by the United Nations based on its economic ability.

Today, SpaceX Falcon 9 will carry out a new launch.

It's clear that the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket Block 5 launch is going to be a major step forward for the company, and may serve to finally establish the company as a provider of economically viable spaceflight. The military had said earlier this year that it was targeting June, but the date has been pushed back due to ongoing qualification testing and engineering review.

Below is a summary of what to expect from the latest and last iteration of Falcon 9, based on our previous reporting, a list of changes compiled by Reddit's r/SpaceX community (which we first heard about from Eric Berger at Ars Technica), and other sources.

Musk said he was proud of the SpaceX team who worked hard prior to the launch to make it a successful one.

Unlike all SpaceX missions in 2017 and 2018, the preflight fueling sequence will be very different. At T-16mins, fueling of the second stage with LOX will commence.

-More thrust produced by the rocket's nine Merlin main engines. Afterwards, the two-stage rocket's first stage will make an attempt to land on a drone ship off the Florida coast. The first stage will perform its Entry Burn at T+6mins 15secs ahead of an anticipated landing on Of Course I Still Love You 8mins 10secs after launch. Block 5 will also likely be the final upgrade to Falcon 9. The satellite is expected to bring Ku-band coverage to Bangladesh and the Bay of Bengal in addition to surrounding countries.
