a leakage was detected in a pipe of Reaction Control System (RCS).

The Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS), the New
Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) and
the National Space Development Agency (NASDA) have been engaged in
flight operation of the vehicle toward the launch on Feb. 1, 1995.

the repair work would have been finished.
