    Yesterday, a Chinese news article confirmed the lift-off time upon which I based
    my search elements. It also reported that forecast high wind threatens to delay
    "The rocket for sending the second pair to orbit is to lift off at 1:33 p.m.
    (0433 GMT) from the Tanegashima Space Center in Kagoshima Prefecture, according
    to JAXA, formed in October through a merger involving the National Space
    Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) and two other space entities. 
    The agency will check weather conditions before giving the final go-ahead, JAXA
    said, since strong winds of up to 32 kilometers per hour are forecast and gusts
    of up to 54 kph are likely. Winds with maximum speeds of over 53 kph could push
    the rocket into the gantry and damage it."
