The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries, Ltd. were scheduled to perform the second captive firing
test (CFT) on April 20, 2009 (Japan Standard Time) at the Tanegashima
Space Center. 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.
