The first stage was previously used for the Bangabandhu Satellite-1 mission on May 11, sending Bangladesh's first geostationary communications satellite into orbit to provide at least 15 years of broadband internet connectivity to rural areas.

State telecommunications company PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) witnessed its newest satellite, Satelit Merah Putih, launched into space from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, the United States, at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday, or around midday in Jakarta.

For Telkom Indonesia, the launch restores the state-owned operator's fleet back to three satellites after one of its satellites exploded in orbit last August.

The first stage rocket was first used in May, and it marks the first time that the more reusable "Block 5" design has reflown after a previous mission.

Seconds before touchdown, four legs deployed and the rocket settled to an on-target landing. Built by Lockheed Martin, the satellite was 18 years old, operating three years past its design life.

Officials from Telkom Indonesia expected the Telkom 1 satellite, which launched in 1999, to remain operational until Merah Putih's launch.
