    According to SpaceFlight Now (and Reuters), the Astro-E (Japanese X-ray 
    astronomy satellite) launch failed:

    but it's not clear to me if it never achieved orbit or went into a 
    wrong orbit.  No elements on OIG yet (about 7:00 UTC Feb 10).
    It was supposed to go into a 550 km circular orbit with a 31-degree
