Comment by Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi
[Concerning the Launch of the H-IIA Launch Vehicle No.10 (H-IIA F10)]
I am pleased that the H-IIA Launch Vehicle No. 10 (H-IIA F10) had been successfully launched from Tanegashima Space Center (TNSC) today, placing in orbit the Information Gathering Satellite (IGS) Optical 2.
I hope that Japan's efforts for space development and space use will continue to result in accomplishments that are commensurate with our position as a nation advanced in space activities.
