  • WATCH: SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket launches one hour

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 - a key to the SpaceX business model.

The first Falcon 9 Block 5 version blasted off from Cape Canaveral at 1:14 p.m.

A new version of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket that could eventually take astronauts to space took flight for the first time Friday. The rocket is the final design of Falcon 9, and features modifications for simpler manufacturing, to meet NASA commercial crew requirements, and to include Air Force requests.

The launch was another in a string of resounding successes for Musk's aerospace company, whose ability to pioneer new advances in space technology have stood in contrast to the production struggles of his electric auto company, Tesla. And this particular rocket will be showing off its landing skills after the flight.

"Today, we launched Bangabandhu Satellite-1".

But he expressed hope that the president would "be back in the country on Saturday by the grace of God". Buhari however spent 51 days following medical advice to run some recommended tests by his doctors.

Bangladesh had orbital slots from the United Nation's International Telecommunication Union that it considered too far from Bangladesh to ensure reliable satellite services. The communication satellite is named Bangabandhu-1 after the country's founding father.

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).

The rocket is built to re-fly up to 10 times with minimal refurbishment, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk told reporters ahead of the launch.

The rocket, which is carrying a satellite for Bangladesh into orbit, was scheduled to blast off from launch pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center Thursday, but the planned launch was scrubbed. Weather may be a little iffy, though; there's a 60 percent chance of good conditions.

Musk said he was proud of the SpaceX team who worked hard prior to the launch to make it a successful one. "I would like to greet and congratulate the people of the country on this glorious occasion", she said in a message on Saturday marking the launching of the country's first satellite.
