Another historic first for SpaceX is scheduled to take place Thursday evening, with a launch window opening at 4:12 p.m. - the first launch for a new generation Falcon 9 Block 5 rocket.

It is part of SpaceX's goal of rapid reusability and high reliability for its rockets. If you'd like, you can be a part of this occasion by tuning into the live video broadcast at the SpaceX website.

Forecasters are predicting an 80 percent chance of favorable weather conditions for the launch attempt. The first stage of the Block 4 Falcon 9 is limited to two launches, but the Block 5 first stage should be able to lift off 10 times - with just inspections between landing and launch - and up to 100 times with some refurbishment, according to company representatives.

Importantly, it will be a Block 5 design that will be used to carry astronauts to the International Space Station.

Boeing also holds a NASA crew contract. But first it needs at least 7 successful launches before NASA will approve the rocket for human cargo.

It's clear that the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket Block 5 launch is going to be a major step forward for the company, and may serve to finally establish the company as a provider of economically viable spaceflight. The two-stage Block 5 Falcon 9 is created to take reusability to new heights.

He said it has been delayed several times because of weather and technical hiccups.

The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has announced that the country's first satellite, Bangabandhu-1, will be launched on 10 May from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA by SpaceX.
