However, we would like to announce the postponement of the test as bad weather conditions are forecasted on April 20 and 21. Currently, we plan to hold the test on April 22. The final go/no-go decision for the test on the 22nd will be determined by continuously monitoring and examining the weather conditions and other factors.
