1 min read

The launch of Japan’s Smart Lander for Investigating Moon (SLIM) has been delayed due to weather conditions, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) said on Monday.

Japan’s first SLIM lunar module was to be launched on the H-IIA launch vehicle from Tanegashima Space Center. It also could have been the first launch by the agency since the failure of the new H3 rocket in March.

JAXA announced the cancellation of the launch 23 minutes before the rocket was expected to take-off.
