The H-2B rocket launch has been rescheduled for Monday at 12:30 p.m. EDT (1630 GMT), MHI said in a statement Friday. Launch time is set for 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in Japan. The 186-foot-tall (56.6-meter) rocket will carry Japan’s eighth HTV cargo ship into orbit on a mission to resupply the International Space Station.   More
