Looks like JAXA is penciling in the SS-520 reflight for March 2017 2018 according to NHK/JAXA press conference

Rumor mill says the rocket will be called SS-520-5, flying a payload called TRICOM-1R (likely the backup unit for TRICOM-1).


EDIT yeah, meant 2018...

I think that's "Spring 2018" if my crude Japanese didn't fail me. ;)

Oh JAXA seems to be pushing hard to get the reflight sooner than I thought! They just scheduled the launch on Christmas Day @ 01:00 - 05:15 UTC.  :o

Epsilon delays creating an opening plus they don't want to be upstaged by Interstellar/Horie-mon...
