cape canaveral - After a failed first launch attempt, it was still possible to get a new type of the Falcon 9 rocket into space.

The American space company SpaceX launched the rocket with a satellite for the Bangladesh government on Friday from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. A part of it then landed safely on a platform in the Pacific Ocean.

The launch was actually planned on Thursday, but it was stopped less than a minute before departure. The reason for breaking off the launch was a 'technical defect. '

The type of rocket used by the aerospace company is an improved version of the Falcon 9 type. The majority of the rocket is intended to be reused up to ten times.
