Submission + - Tora! Tora! Tora! II? (www.jaxa.jp) 1

aGuyNamedJoe writes: The Venus Climate Orbiter "AKATSUKI" shifted its attitude at 7:50 a.m. on December 6 to be ready for Venus orbit insertion at 8:49 a.m. on December 7.

Those are JST, but when I saw it, the date and time December 7, 7:49am was automagically linked in my head. Different timezone and year, of course, but it seemed an interesting near coincidence historically.

Even more interesting, of course, should be the technical aspects. If I'm not mistaken, it's now Dec 8 in Japan, though, so is this already done?
