This is a weather related delay. So no 2-launches-in-1 special with F9......

Congrats to MHI and JAXA on another successful H-IIA launch. To be honest, this was the first H-IIA launch I've watched on a livestream. The others I've seen after they entered orbit.

Thank you, NSF contributors, for the launch coverage!  Again, a great way to record the event for posterity, and a great way to follow up on launches that one cannot watch live.
