The launch of the Epsilon-6 type rocket belonging to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) ended in failure.

JAXA launched the Epsilon-6 rocket at around 09:50 local time from the Uchinoura Space Center in southwestern Kagoshima province.

Carrying 8 satellites, including commercial purposes, in its cargo, the 26-meter-long and 95-ton rocket self-destructed while on the move after the launch.

The agency stated that the rocket was ordered to be destroyed when it was understood that the rocket had problems during ascent and would not maintain its safe course.

An official of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology announced that no damage was detected throughout the region after the destruction of the rocket.
