Thursday afternoon SpaceX said liftoff is now targeted for 5:47 pm. A backup launch window opens on Friday, May 11 at 4:14 p.m. EDT, or 20:14 UTC, and closes at 6:21 p.m. EDT, or 22:21 UTC.
A key part of the mission will be landing the rocket's first-stage booster once it returns to Earth.
On board the rocket is the country of Bangladesh's first communications satellite. The rocket was also created to meet NASA's stringent crew-carrying requirements.
This will make it easier to certify the Falcon 9 rocket for human flight.
Falcon 9 is the rocket that SpaceX launches most often; in fact, more than 50 of the workhorse rockets have lifted off in eight years. A Falcon 9 rocket will deliver Bangabandhu-1 to a geostationary transfer orbit from Cape Kennedy Center launching pad of Orlando in Florida. Once launched, the spacecraft will provide broadcast and communications services to the residents of the South Asian nation - as reported by French company Thales Alenia Space which built the satellite.
With greater refurbishment, a Block 5 could be launched up to 100 times.
By shortening the turnaround time back into space and reducing the preparations needed for a new mission, SpaceX could lower the cost of launches even further.
A second stage COPV apparently ruptured during a pre-launch test September 1, 2016, triggering a catastrophic explosion that destroyed a Falcon 9 and its satellite payload and heavily damaged the launch complex.
Most of the changes to this final form of the Falcon 9 are created to emphasize reusability. Still, that's a massive improvement over what we've dealt with previously in terms of space travel.
Boeing also holds a NASA crew contract. It has more powerful engines and better heat shielding at the base of the rocket.
Bangabandhu-1 is a communications satellite and is named after Bangladesh's founding father, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Some people see SpaceX's tactics as risky because they test new rocket features on active missions, rather than performing test launches. "That's basically the key thing on block 5".
