Successful Launch: Japan's H2-B Rocket Lifts Into Space

This week, Japan's Space Agency (JAXA) announced the launch of an unmanned Kounotori7 cargo vessel atop an H2-B rocket from the Tanegashima Space Center. This re-supply mission will achieve orbit and dock with the International Space Station bringing supplies, food, and scientific equipment. The cargo ship built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries includes a small return capsule which will bring back experiments. We at American Mishima salute JAXA's contribution to the continued exploration of space and the discoveries Japan will make.
