TOKYO (AP) — Japan’s space agency on Tuesday postponed the launch of a second test flight of its new main series H3 rockets scheduled for launch this week because of bad weather forecast at the launch site. This delay comes as Japanese space officials seek to ensure a successful launch, a year after the failure of the rocket’s first flight.

Thunder and strong winds are expected at the launch site at Tanegashima Space Center in southern Japan, according to Masashi Okada, H3 project manager at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA. The launch was initially scheduled to take place on Thursday.
