Cross-post from the program thread:
According to the official NASA website, the launch of XRISM and SLIM is now scheduled for NLT April 2023.
Noting the Japanese fiscal year runs April through March; it's basically a launch in the current fiscal year.



Any news regarding the next H-IIA launch, whatever it may be?

StriX-1 launch on Electron, mid September:
Quote from: Rocket Lab tweets
Next on the pad is @synspective! In Sept we’re launching our second of three dedicated missions for @synspective to build their SAR constellation – and marking a series of milestones for Rocket Lab at the same time.

30th Electron launch | This is our 30th Electron mission! And with this launch, Electron will have successfully reached orbit more times in 2022 than all other US small launchers combined.

150th satellite | StriX-1 will bring our tally of sats to orbit to 150 – a quarter of those delivered to space in the past three months alone! [Aug 15]

Rocket Lab has updated their Next Mission webpage, which gives additional information.  In particular it mentions "lift-off from Pad B" and "a launch window opening in mid-September".

AP newsfeed says Tanegashima space center may have sustained rocket assembly building wall damage from Typhoon Nanmadol. That might delay a few things...

Doesn’t look like any more damage than what KSC’s VAB sustained a few years ago so maybe not, unless interior water seepage is reported:
