That's a nice payload processing facility.

Nifty how the entire launch vehicle *rotates* out of the tower on the launcher arm.

Very nice history of Japanese launch vehicles on the webcast.

I thought that was wind noise. Or maybe it's some kind of drum soundtrack instead.

That was a long, long countdown!!!

Anyone know what that smoke was all about at about T-10 seconds. Never seen that on a solid before.

Stage seperation 1/2.

Third stage ignition. This thing doesn't take long to get uphill (as mentioned earlier).

I'd guess it's the gas generator for the TVC on the first stage.

That smoke might have been for the type of TVC power source they use. (something like an SRB APU?)

I believe it has something to do with the thrust vector control system, but don't know the details.

That sure was a mighty quick launch. :)

Wonder what kind of g-forces the payload has to be designed for?
