Again undershoot. Japanese private rocket exploded almost immediately after launch
Japanese media reported another failed launch of a private rocket. This is a rocket company Interstellar Technologies Inc., whose name - MOMO. Start the company tried to implement without the participation of the Japanese Aerospace Agency. Just a few seconds after the launch of the 10-meter rocket exploded in the air, flying several kilometers.
With the help of a rocket, the Japanese were trying to bring a spacecraft. His appointment for the moment is kept secret.
It should be noted that this is the second unsuccessful attempt to launch the MOMO rocket. The first start took place last July 30. Then a rocket weighing about a ton was launched from the launch pad on the island of Hokkaido. After a few seconds, the control center stopped receiving telemetry information, the flight ceased to be controlled, which led to the need to urgently stop the engine. As a result, the rocket went into a state of free fall from a height of approximately 20 thousand meters. After some time, the rocket fell into the Quiet at a distance of about 6-7 km from the launch site.
A private company tried to use the rocket for research purposes, as well as for the commercialization of flights. Currently, Interstellar Technologies Inc. continues to incur losses due to unsuccessful starts. The amount of damages is currently not reported, nor is it reported when the next start is expected.
