Thousands of people across the world witnessed the launching, which was telecast by different television channels.

SpaceX had previously planned to launch the satellite using Falcon-9 rockets on 16 December, 2017, but the launch was postponed due to damage from hurricane Irma.

However, according to SpaceX, an automatic abort was triggered with just 58 seconds remaining before liftoff at 5:47 p.m. ET.

Though this was the initial touchdown for a Block 5 initial stage, it was the 25th total for a Falcon 9 throughout an orbital launch. "Second stage and satellite now in coast phase".

Mahmood said after completing and traveling several processes, few more days will be required to tame the satellite at its Gazipur's Joydebpur and Rangamati's Betbunia ground stations.

The satellite launch, done on behalf the Bangladesh government, will allow internet access to all corners of the country.

The satellite will be controlled from Joydebpur in Gazipur, near the capital, and another ground station in Rangamati Betbunia, in south-eastern Bangladesh, will be used as an alternative.

It is expected to have a 15-year lifespan and will help save money for the Dhaka government, which now spends $14 million annually to rent from the services of foreign satellites, government officials said.
