Japan launches rocket with supplies for International Space Station
Japan's space agency launched a supply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday.
The JAXA Kounotori7 cargo ship (also known as HTV-7) took off from Tanegashima Space Center in southern Japan.
The launch had been delayed by a few days due to technical problems and bad weather.
The ISS will reportedly receive six new lithium-ion batteries for its power system from the Kounotori7.
Space.com reported that the spacecraft was also carrying a series of tiny satellites for studies, including one for a space elevator technology test.
