The infrared satellite, ASTRO-F, now called AKARI, was successfully launched by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) on 21 February 2006. In a collaborative effort involving ESA and scientists across Europe, the spacecraft (renamed AKARI, meaning 'light') will make an unprecedented study of the sky in infrared light.
