SpaceX on Friday, May 11, blasted off its newest and most powerful Falcon 9 rocket, known as the Block 5, carrying the first communications satellite for Bangladesh called Bangabandhu Satellite-1, and marking a leap forward in re-usability for the California-based aerospace company.

The main goal for the maiden mission of Block 5 Falcon 9 rocket was to launch the high-orbit communications satellite for Bangladesh to a geostationary transfer orbit roughly 22,000 miles (35,000 kilometers) above Earth, reports AFP.
