Daily Yomiuri Publishes Inaccurate HTV Purchase Claims - Again

HTV spacecraft could take off - Japan's transport vehicle eyed as replacement for U.S. space shuttle, Daily Yomiuri

"In February this year, the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration made reference to the HTV in its budget message for fiscal 2009, saying it is possible it might purchase the HTV in the future. At a press conference one month later, NASA Administrator Michael Griffin expressed high hopes for the HTV, saying it was expected to make a large contribution in the supply of goods to the ISS."

Editor's note: Apparently the folks at the Daily Yomiuri are breathing their own fumes. NASA already responded to an earlier story 2 weeks ago and denied that HTV purchases are being considered.
