It's interesting how japanese domestic reporting calls it a failure, but US reporting calls it a partial success.

Horie-mon is a bit miffed by Canon Electronics forming a new domestic newspace JV and he wasn't invited. If Interstellar can get a successful reflight in before Canon Electronics and their SS-520 reflight, we may see Horie-mon steal some of the PR thunder here.

They probably should be a bit miffed. I just saw the NHK news article on Canon using IST launch footage, but ( far as i can google-translate ) not a word about IST

Japanese company plans second launch of privately funded sounding rocket this year
by Jeff Foust August 23, 2017

LOGAN, Utah A Japanese company whose first sounding rocket launch last month failed to reach space will try again by the end of the year as it continues work on a small launch vehicle.

[]

Horio said that, once in commercial service, Interstellar will sell launches of Momo for $300,000 each. The company expects to produce one rocket every one to two months.

Seems like they also showed their concept for the orbital version at press conference, it's visible at the right corner of the table.

Here's ansur_nied's rendering of Momo, the orbital rocket, and the British Black Arrow. 2 m is a rough estimate for the diameter.
