The Falcon 9 Block 5 launched the Bangladesh Communications Satellite Co.'s first orbital satellite, dubbed Bangabandhu-1, into orbit.
"Bangladesh started a glorious chapter in the history with the launching of Bangabandhu-1 satellite as it has become a proud member of the satellite club from today", the president said in a message. This is the 25th successful Falcon 9 powered touchdown.
But the countdown came to an abrupt halt with less than a minute remaining.
SpaceX has return-landed 2 4 of its own boosters and reflown 11 of them.
Such tasks belong to the firm's initiatives to establish totally as well as quickly multiple-use rockets as well as spacecraft.

It was the seventh weekly protest, and a preview of what is expected to be a much larger border rally on Monday and Tuesday. An IDF official told the news website that the drones destroyed over 40 burning kites throughout the border demonstrations.
The Block 5's upgrades take an additional action in this instructions.
The recoverable Block-5 booster is created to be reused at least 10 times with minimal refurbishment between flights, allowing more frequent launches at lower cost. These upgrades provide the rocket with about 8 percent and 5 percent more thrust, respectively, compared to the "Block 4".
The successful launch of the Block-5 takes the company one step closer to satisfying NASA regulations for carrying astronauts to the International Space Station. "Now we'll be able to achieve self-sufficiency in these sectors and give up dependence on foreign satellites", Hamid added.
In addition, the new booster features a suite of reliability upgrades created to satisfy NASA's stringent crew-carrying standards, because SpaceX will use the Block 5 - as well as the company's Dragon capsule- to ferry astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS).
SpaceX holds a multibillion-dollar agreement with NASA to offer such taxi solutions.
That last part - the refurbishment - is going to be key, because the rocket is the first of SpaceX's Block 5 models to fly.
While few details about the Block 5 are available as of yet, Musk says that the rocket has more powerful engines, hardier hardware, less weight, and a more reproducible structure. "This rocket is truly created to be- the intent is to be one of the most trusted rocket ever before constructed.". "There are thousands and thousands and thousands of requirements", Musk said of the rocket.
