Japan: Start-up rocket flies into pieces after failed launch attempt

A start-up company rocket burst into flames as it crashed into earth seconds after its lift-off in Taiki town on Hokkaido. Developed by Interstellar Technologies, the 10-metre MOMO-2 pencil rocket was supposed to reach 100 kilometres into the orbit but its journey was short-lived as managed to ascend only slightly. According to Interstellar Technologies president Takahiro Inagawa, the failure... Еще was most likely caused by a technical glitch making it the second unsuccessful attempt since the rocket's first launch in July 2017. Japan's private rocket sector is yet to make a breakthrough as the country is still dependant on its governmental space organisations for putting information satellites in the orbit.
