Japan launched Saturday its new solid-fuel rocket, the Epsilon, after a delay in late August, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) said.
Japan`s state-run space agency Monday said the launch of its next-generation solid-fuel rocket had been rescheduled for September 14 after the first attempt was suspended seconds before lift-off.
Japan`s first new rocket in 12 years failed to lift off, dealing a potential blow to hopes that Japan may be able to take a larger share of the growing, multi-billion dollar satellite launch industry.
