SpaceX Launches and Lands Its Most Reusable Rocket Yet

SpaceX has successfully landed its Falcon 9 Block 5, the rocket that will used to transport astronauts to the International Space Station.

The recoverable Block 5 booster is meant to be reused at least 10 times with minimal refurbishment involving flights, so allowing more typical rods at lower price tag - a secret into the SpaceX firm version.

Los Angeles-based SpaceX on Friday launched and landed its most recoverable rocket yet - one that is expected to carry US astronauts to the International Space Station beginning later this year.

The private space company enthusiastically shared on social media photos of all the important moments of the "Block 5" Falcon 9 launch, including an image of the Bangabandhu-1 satellite in the geostationary transfer orbit.

The "Block 5" is the newest version of the Falcon 9 rocket and also the last one that SpaceX will ever produce.

SpaceX has signed a United States dollars 2.6 billion contract with the NASA to complete development of Crew Dragon, a capsule to ferry astronauts to and from the International Space Station. The first crewed flights of the Block 5-Dragon system could come as early as this year, SpaceX representatives have said. These upgrades provide the rocket with about 8 percent and 5 percent more thrust, respectively, compared to the "Block 4". "Second stage and satellite now in coast phase". "This rocket is really created to be - the intent is to be the most reliable rocket ever built".

The 3.9-ton (3.5 metric tons) Bangabandhu 1, which was built by French company Thales Alenia Space, will be Bangladesh's first communications satellite.

"In the continuous advancement of Bangladesh another milestone is added today", said Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in a video address aired on SpaceX's launch webcast.

Recalling with deep gratitude Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and three million martyrs and 2 lakh women who lost their dignity during the Liberation War, she said, "With the launching of Bangabandhu-1, we're moving forward by another step in materialising the dream of the Father of the Nation".
