‘Bangabandhu Satellite’ launches May 4

BTRC Chairman Shahjahan Mahmud says Bangladesh’s ‘Bangabandhu Satellite’ will be launched from Florida’s Cape Canaveral on May 4. Private space flight and technology company SpaceX has confirmed the launch date for Bangladesh’s first satellite, he told on Wednesday. SpaceX had previously planned to launch the satellite using Falcon-9 rockets on Dec 16 of last year, but the launch was postponed due to damage from Hurricane Irma. It takes two months to prepare the pad for launching any satellite out of the SpaceX facility in Florida.
