The Epsilon Rocket makes news for a number of reasons but costing a measly $37 million to launch is one of them!
The Japanese rocket, Epsilon, launched from South-West Japan at 2pm local time. The rocket is headed in to space to launch a telescope in to the Earth’s orbit where it will keep an eye on our neighboring planets. How was the rocket able to launch for just $37 million? Jaxa, the Japanese space organization, puts it down to cutting the manpower needed from 150 down to 8 by implementing artificial intelligence.
