Falcon 9 is scheduled to be certified by NASA for launching human beings.

As the satellite started its journey into space, people of all ages across Bangladesh were awake, and many of them started singing the national anthem.

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

Mohammad Ziauddin, Bangladesh's ambassador to the USA, called it a historic occasion and a matter of great pride for his country's citizens.

"Today is a very delightful and glorious day for our motherland, Bangladesh, and Bangalee nation", she said.

His daughter Sheikh Hasina is the incumbent Prime Minister of Bangladesh.

"Bangladesh entered the space era, with this ideal and successful launching [of the satellite]". Bangabandhu-1 is now on it's own flying out to its final orbit over Bangladesh.

SpaceX lifted Bangladesh's first satellite into orbit Friday using an upgraded rocket designed for dozens of repeat flights including back-to-back, same-day launches, tailored for eventual crewed missions for NASA.

The launching has two phases. Then again, the notoriously fickle chap has also said he wants to begin retrieving the second stage of the Falcon, which would entail some major design changes in the future. The LEOP phase will take 10 days while the second will take 20 days. The ground segment relies on both primary and the secondary ground facilities including a building that houses the satellite operation and control center and network operations center. One transponder is equivalent to 36 MHz. C- band covers Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and portions of Kazakhstan.

The Falcon 9 Block 5 is the rocket SpaceX intends to use to ferry astronauts to the International Space Station. It is predicted that with the launch of Bangabandhu-1, this cost will significantly decrease.

The satellite was built by Thales Alenia Space of Cannes, France. Later, on March 29, the satellite was shifted to Florida.

Initial connections have already been established with the Gazipur and Rangamati ground stations, while the satellite Bangabandhu is running its smooth sailing towards its orbit. The satellite's mission is expected to last at least 15 years. "Bangladesh is on the path to conquer the space", he tweeted in Bangla before the launch.

It will also provide broadband connectivity to rural areas throughout the country. It marked a key milestone for the country and was celebrated throughout Bangladesh.
