The satellite is expected to expand communication capabilities across Bangladesh and in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Indonesia.

"Since the standard terrestrial system was automatically suspended in T-1 minutes, it stood up today", the company released a tweet soon after launch.

The Block 5 version of the Falcon 9 includes improvements such as upgraded heat shields to protect the rocket's base during re-entry.

"You know, it could be a thousand things that go right on this rocket, and one that goes wrong, and a passing grade for rockets - the reason that it's so hard to make an orbital rocket work - is that your passing grade is 100 percent", Musk said during yesterday's telecon.

It was the most severe flare-up between Israel and Iran over Tehran's actions in Syria. They mostly base upon the current voluminous Syrian military infrastructure.

The company says the Block 5 variant can be re-flown as many as 10 times and can be easily refurbished between launches, which would drastically reduce the cost of a single launch.

SpaceX has return-landed 2 4 of its own boosters and reflown 11 of them. 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.

The new Falcon 9 rocket took off on its maiden voyage to carry into orbit Bangladesh's first communications satellite, Bangabandhu-1.

The Block 5 has new, black landing legs that are retractable.

During the call, Musk discussed changes that SpaceX engineers have incorporated into the Block 5 variant of the rocket.

In a televised message on Saturday, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said: "The Bangabandhu Satellite-1 will be a great addition to our information technology, heralding our entry into the satellite club of the world". It's also created to be safer and more reliable for astronauts who will be launched to the space station by SpaceX within the next year.

Last month, NASA's following planet-hunter, the Transiting Exoplanet Study Satellite (Tess), was effectively introduced on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Flying Force Terminal in Florida. NASA requires seven successful flights before the new rocket receives final certification for a manned mission. The company also arranged for the spacecraft's launch on the Falcon 9.

Falcon 9 rocket, intending to bring astronauts to the International Spaceport Station (ISS) in the future, included several layout modifications to boost its reusability and also integrity.
