    According to the following summary, the upcoming H2 launch, 
    set for August 25, will include one payload that it calls 
    a "mirror ball" for laser ranging (another EGP/Ajisai, but 
    perhaps in lower orbit?):
    On this or other sites I can't find any information about 
    orbital height, inclination, etc., but the planned orbits 
    for the payloads are said to be LEO.  The other payload 
    will be what might be called a "dummy mass".
