Japan successfully fired a state-owned satellite into orbit on Saturday in a key step toward restoring faith in its space program, 15 months after its previous launch attempt ended in failure.
The Japanese-built H-2A rocket powered into the evening sky leaving a huge plume of vapor above the launch site on the tiny island of Tanegashima, 620 miles southwest of Tokyo at 6:25 p.m. (4:25 a.m. EST).
I wish I could have been there. But the picture is enough for me for now. Although I do regret not entering into this space lotto, but now I am getting off topic...
Television showed scientists applauding and shaking hands in the control room.
"At the moment of takeoff, my heart swelled," said Education and Science Minister Nariaki Nakayama, whose ministry oversees JAXA. "When I heard the satellite had separated successfully, I was relieved, but at the same time I thought it was a matter of course."
It is good to see Japan's honor restored in their space program. Hopefully they will be able to put a man into space, something China already has done but Japan has yet to do. Here is photo for you to enjoy. Selah!
