Tokyo, Japan (SPX) Jan 21, 2009
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency were scheduled to launch the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite "IBUKI" (GOSAT) by the H-IIA Launch Vehicle No. 15 (H-IIA F15) on January 22, 2009 (Japan Standard Time, JST) from the Tanegashima Space Center; however, we decided to reschedule the launch date to January 23 (JST) as an excessive volume of clouds including a freezing layer are expected to cover the launch site around the launch time on the 22nd.

The launch time is between 12:54 p.m. and 1:16 p.m. on the 23rd (JST.)

We continue to examine the weather after tomorrow to make the ultimate decision of the launch on Jan. 23.
