Japanese ISS cargo mission launch scrubbed
Posted: Sun, Sep 16, 2018, 10:40 AM ET (1440 GMT)
A technical problem with an H-2B rocket has postponed the launch of a Japanese cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station for an extended period. The launch, which was scheduled for Friday at about 5:00 pm EDT (2100 GMT) was scrubbed shortly before the scheduled launch time because of an unspecified problem with the rocket's propulsion system. No new launch date has been set, and an official with rocket manufacturer MHI said a "rather serious issue" caused the scrub. Weather delayed the launch from earlier in the week. The rocket is carrying the HVT-7 cargo spacecraft with more than six tons of supplies for the ISS.
