Japanese rocket carrying an unmanned cargo transporter to the International Space Station was launched Saturday afternoon, after a two-day delay due to adverse weather conditions.

The H-2B rocket was launched at 2:37 p.m. from the pad at Tanegashima Space Center on Tanegashima Island in Kagoshima Prefecture. It is carrying the HTV2 transporter, also called Konotori2, which is expected to connect with the ISS on Jan. 28, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency said.

Loaded on the H-2B Launch Vehicle No. 2 rocket, the transporter will deliver about 5.3 tons of cargo to the ISS, including food for the astronauts, equipment for use in Japan's Kibo laboratory module and about 80 kilograms of drinking water.
