Astro-E2 arrived at USC

After the successful test at Tsukuba Space Center (TKSC), Astro-E2 was shipped to JAXA's Uchinoura Space Center (USC) located in the south of Kyushu island, and arrived there on May 26. At USC, we will perform the final detailed function verification test of the spacecraft, connect the spacecraft to JAXA's M-V rocket, and launch it. We will make our best efforts to this operation.
