Malfunction occurred in the second stage

The rocket was launched from the Tanegashima Space Center in southern Japan. After the launch, the people around expressed happiness at first, but when they came to know that the rocket had been blown away by blasting, then there was despair on their faces. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency has said that the rocket successfully achieved its first stage flight but the rocket developed a fault in the second stage.

The agency further said that after a malfunction in the second stage, the command to detonate JAXA was sent. Because there was no hope left to complete the mission. The agency has said that officials are probing how the engine of the last rocket malfunctioned.

In October last year too, this space agency of Japan had suffered a major setback. When a small solid fueled rocket of the Epsilon series failed. According to media reports, the launch of the H3 has been delayed by two years due to the delay in the preparation of the engine.
