New Japanese Rocket Is Destroyed During First Test Flight to Space.
About 15 minutes after the launch, the officials confirmed that the mission had been lost.
“A destruct command has been transmitted to H3 because there was no possibility of achieving the mission,” the announcer said on the webcast.
The rocket’s second stage was deliberately destroyed, most likely to ensure that its wreckage landed in an area of the ocean where it would not threaten people or property.
That also meant that the rocket’s payload, the Advanced Land Observation Satellite-3, was obliterated.
