H-2A launch on flight 4 (NASDA) The launch of a remote sensing satellite on a Japanese launch vehicle has been delayed 24 hours because of a minor glitch. The Japanese space agency JAXA said the launch of the Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) on a H-2A, which had been scheduled for Monday, would be delayed a day after a malfunction in ground equipment that controlled the temperature inside the rocket's payload fairing. The launch had already been delayed several days because of a faulty telemetry transmitted on the rocket as well as poor weather at the Tanegashima Space Center. ALOS carries a suite of instruments including a camera, radiometer, and synthetic aperture radar to collect data for use in mapping as well as disaster monitoring.
