Launching Bangabandhu Satellite

Bangabandhu Satellite-1, the first geostationary communications satellite of Bangladesh, will be launched from Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, USA. Thales Alenia Space, a French company, designed and built the satellite, which already underwent several test runs.

Falcon-9, a brand new rocket, will carry the satellite into the orbit. For Bangladesh, this has potentials to bring a new chapter in terms of technological advancement. The satellite will bring uninterrupted telecommunication system in Bangladesh.

It's a matter of pride that Bangladesh is now a member of an elite club comprising of only 57 states that own at least a satellite.
