Block 5 Falcon 9: When Is SpaceX Launching Its Advanced New Rocket?

Block 5 Falcon 9: When Is SpaceX Launching Its Advanced New Rocket?

"It's a reliability upgrade that combines reliability and reusability".

The launch of Bangladesh's first satellite, Bangabandhu-1, will have to wait another day at least, after it was aborted with under a minute left in the countdown to takeoff. A delay to Friday would see a drop to 60 percent favorable for the same reason.

According to space.com, the rocket will try to land on a robotic "drone ship" off the Florida coast shortly after liftoff. For comparison, older Block 4 versions flew a maximum of two missions before retirement.

Other changes include improved heat shield insulation at the base of the rocket, a tougher "octaweb" first stage engine mounting framework, redesigned turbopump machinery to minimize or eliminate small cracks in critical components and improved insulation in other areas of the rocket.

Maiden launch of Block 5 rocket. For SpaceX to become cost-effective, as it has aimed to do since the company was first founded, it has to make as many components on its rockets as reusable as possible.

The flight marks the debut of the "Block 5" version of the Falcon 9 rocket, intended by its designers to be the final iteration, suited for flying ten times or more and carrying humans to the International Space Station.

Every orbital rocket since the dawn of the Space Age, except for components of the space shuttle, has been thrown away after a single flight.

The Falcon Heavy is 230 feet tall and consists of three Falcon 9 first-stage cores.

State Minister for Information Tarana Halim, State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Junaid Ahmed Palak, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) Chairman Dr Shahjahan Mahmood attended the meeting.

A 30-member team, including State Minister for Information Tarana Halim and State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak flew off to Florida to witness the launch of Bangabandhu-1. At T-38mins, the SpaceX Launch Director will verify that all is ready for the start of propellant loading.
