Japan launched its second unmanned spacecraft, from its Tanegashima Space Centre, on Saturday. The rocket is carrying supplies to the International Space Station (ISS).
The launch was executed jointly by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency and Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, reported Nikkie.com.
The space craft has been named Kountori 2, which means white stork.
The launch was originally scheduled for Thursday, but was delayed due to bad weather. The spacecraft was launched atop H2B rocket, according to JAXA, the Japanese Space agency.
If everything goes according to schedule, the Space craft will arrive with more than 5 tons of supplies at the ISS, on Jan. 27.
