Japan launches Earth-observing satellite on H3 rocket's third flight

Industry news

  • Japan's H3 rocket, created by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, launched at 3:06 a.m. GMT from Japan's Tanegashima Space Center with the Advanced Land Observing Satellite-4 (ALOS-4) aboard.

  • JAXA reported that the ALOS-4 satellite was launched into low-Earth orbit (LEO) as planned, ~16 minutes after the liftoff. The ALOS-4 is a three-ton satellite, a replacement for the ALOS-2 satellite. Since its departure in 2014, the ALOS-2 has been studying Earth using synthetic aperture radar, which ALOS-4 will now continue.

  • Analyst QuickTake: The H3 rocket was initially expected to lift off in 2020 but was delayed and had its first test launch in March 2023 . However, the first test launch was unsuccessful due to engine failure and a destruct command was issued, which also destroyed the ALOS-3 satellite in the process.
