    Letter: Japan’s GX Program Well Worth Funding

    In a Space News editorial titled “Cancel the GX” [Nov. 30, page 18], erroneous information was stated as fact that we believe needs correction. GX refers to Japan’s Galaxy Express launch vehicle program currently being developed, with assistance, to service the medium-class market. Japan is partnering with United Launch Alliance to use an Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle booster launching from U.S. soil, where there are no launch restrictions for fishing season. In the future, GX will launch from a new restriction-free site in Japan as well.
