H-2A launch on maiden flight (NASDA) The launch of a Japanese H-2A rocket, scheduled for the end of this month, may be pushed back a few days because of weather-related problems, Space News reported. Bad weather at the Tanegashima launch complex delayed two key cryogenic tests by two days, raising the possibility that the January 31 launch of the booster will also be delayed. The launch will be the second for the H-2A, which successfully completed its maiden launch last August. The booster will launch the Mission Demonstration test Satellite-1 (MDS-1) satellite and the Demonstrator of Atmospheric Reentry System with Hyper Velocity (DASH) reentry payload.
