"Rocket and payload are in good health-teams are working towards tomorrow's backup launch opportunity at 4:14 p.m".

The SpaceX launch of Bangabandhu Satellite-1 is set for Friday at 4:14 p.m. from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The new rocket is SpaceX's latest innovation to increase the reusability of its launching system. It was not immediately clear whether SpaceX would be able to resume the countdown and proceed with the maiden flight of its Block-5 Falcon 9 rocket or postpone the launch to another day.

Until now, SpaceX has only ever used any of its boosters twice. The rocket is created to launch twice in a 24-hour period.

The Bangabandhu Satellite-1 will deploy into orbit roughly 33 minutes after launch. The launch window was set to stay open until 6:21 p.m. EDT, according to SpaceX.

A backup launch window is ready or Saturday May 12 at 9.15pm BST (4.14pm ET).

Following stage separation, the second stage returned to the "Of Course I Still Love You" drone ship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. The satellite is expected to bring Ku-band coverage to Bangladesh and the Bay of Bengal in addition to surrounding countries.

Bangabandhu will beam direct-to-home services, video, small aperture terminal communications as well as broadband to rural areas across Bangladesh. Hopefully everything goes well today and launches SpaceX to future success with the Falcon 9 rocket.
