On board the rocket is the country of Bangladesh's first communications satellite.

The satellite, which has cost the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission USD 250 million, was made by Thales Alenia.

Falcon 9 Block 5 will also be the latest development of SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket as the company will focus on the development of the BFR. After separation, the first stage of the two-stage rocket will attempt to land on a robotic "drone ship" off the Florida coast shortly.

It is part of SpaceX's goal of rapid reusability and high reliability for its rockets.

The new Block 5 rocket is created to be sturdier, so that it can be flown up to 10 times with minimal mechanical refurbishment - a big leap forward in efficiency and cost reduction.

"I'm stressed. Any good wishes would be appreciated", Musk said. "Falcon 9 Block 5 - the final version in the series - is the one that has the most performance and is designed for easy reuse".

SpaceX is now testing a system to recover the fairings of its Falcon 9 rockets. Nowadays, NASA sends astronauts to the International Space Station using Russia's Roscosmos space program.

If SpaceX is unable to launch the satellite on Thursday, a backup window is scheduled for Friday.
