Rehearsal of the launch day

We conducted a rehearsal of the launch day. While the launch time is 12:30 noon, the schedule started at 0:30 midnight. This test includes tilting the launcher, setting 34m antenna ready for tracking the satellite, and is a practice just like the real launch day. We are at the final stage of the Astro-E2 launch operation.
