SpaceX Delays Launch of Upgraded Falcon 9 Rocket

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

The launch of the carrier rocket Falcon-9 company SpaceX satellite Bangabandhu-1 launch site at Cape Canaveral in Florida was cancelled a minute before the start. SpaceX will target another launch attempt Friday starting at 4:14 p.m. SpaceX was commissioned by the government of Bangladesh to ferry the Bangabandhu 1 into space earlier this year.

Decreased turnaround time is important for SpaceX's future plans, including launches of its much larger Falcon Heavy rocket - which utilized two reused Falcon 9 first-stages in its maiden launch in February - and development of BFR.

The Block 5 rocket is the final version of SpaceX's Falcon 9 fleet.

SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell told Space News in November that upgrades in the Block 5 version of Falcon9 were driven largely by requests from NASA and the USA military, which will rely on the rocket to transport astronauts to the International Space Station and launch national security satellites, respectively.

Thursday's launch is meant to put the Bangabandhu Satellite-1 into geostationary transfer orbit shortly after the rocket launches from Earth. At the time of this update, the rescheduled time for liftoff was aimed at 5:47 PM Eastern Time (that's 21:47 GMT). Once in orbit and checked out by Thales, the satellite will be operated by the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission. Block 5's design should allow for up to 10 relaunches - or up to 100 times if the rockets are refurbished. "It's a reliability upgrade that combines reliability and reusability".

A beaming Di Maio said , "I cannot hide my joy that we can finally begin to take care of Italy's problems", in a Facebook video. To hammer out a common government program, top League and 5-Star members met on Thursday afternoon.

One of the most significant changes is the use of stronger high-pressure helium tanks, known as composite overwrapped pressure vessels, or COPVs, that are submerged in the rocket's liquid oxygen propellant tanks.

With just 58 seconds remaining in the countdown, Falcon 9 threw an abort just as the vehicle took over the countdown.

The first stage "gets so hot that it lights on fire a little bit, which is not great for reuse", Musk said in March 2017. After failing to determine the reason for the abort, SpaceX delayed the launch by 24 hours. "We tried to summarize all of these lessons learned into a booster that then is able to fly and be recovered and fly again multiple times without a lot of refurbishment".
