Launch of Japanese cargo ship to ISS postponed due to fire


The launch of the Japanese unmanned cargo ship Konotori-8 using the H-IIB carrier rocket to the International Space Station (ISS) was postponed due to a fire at the launch pad, NASA reports.

“The launch from Tanegashima cosmodrome was scheduled for 6:33:29 Japanese time (00:33 Moscow time - RT ), and the spacecraft was supposed to separate in low Earth orbit in about 15 minutes,” NASA RIA Novosti reports.

A new launch date has not yet been announced.

At the same time, the development company of the Mitsubishi launch vehicle clarified that a fire had occurred near the hole in the deck of the mobile launcher.

“Today's launch has been postponed due to ignition near the hole in the deck of the mobile launcher,” the Interfax press service quotes.

In November, a capsule from the Japanese unmanned cargo ship Konotori-7 delivered to the Earth the results of experiments received on the ISS.
