Previous SpaceX Falcon 9 launch
Bangabandhu-1 Launch: SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch of BTRC Bangabandhu-1May 7th?
We anticipate the launch of the first Bangladeshi geostationary communications satellite. Soon.
Day and time could change, of course.
The Orlando Sentinel reports…
This “live” video below comes with some preamble footage of previous launches and yes… Starman… to entertain you until then. This all seems utterly ridiculous considering multiple “secret space programs” but I guess we have to get the unsuspecting masses up to speed for President Trump’s “space fleet”.SpaceX is still planning its first launch of a new generation Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket soon, but there’s no confirmed launch time as of Monday morning.
A test fire of the rocket Friday evening prompted an announcement from SpaceX that it will review data for several days. The Air Force’s 45th Space Wing, which manages the area around the launch pad and the safety zone in the Atlantic Ocean, deleted the May 7 launch date from its website and posted “TBD” for To Be Determined.
The rocket, whenever it launches, is intended to carry a communication satellite for Bangladesh called the Bangabandhu 1, from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center.
The launch window previously was set to open at 4 p.m. Monday, through 6:25 p.m. The 45th Weather Squadron had forecast the probability of good launch weather at the Cape as 70 percent.
Will it be like many of Trump’s initiatives and be shared with the public after the fact? That’s one way not to disappoint or lose credibility: tell no one until it’s a done deal.
