    Liftoff was at 0925 UTC and separation 40 minutes and 2 seconds later. 
    Launch was towards the end of the window owing to an earlier communication 
    failure between the ground station and the launch vehicle.
    
    An excellent launch - log at 
    http://mtsat1r.rocketsystem.co.jp/rcc/index_e.html - this has some pictures 
    but there are more nice ones at 
    http://mtsat1r.rocketsystem.co.jp/live/internet_e.html
    
    I guess the Australians will be keeping an eye or two open for this one!
