GINGA, formerly known as Astro-C, is the third Japanese X-ray astronomy satellite launched by the M-3SII-3 rocket on February 5, 1987, from Kagoshima Space Center. The observation period ended on November 1, 1991, when GINGA reentered the earth's atmosphere. The collaboration between Japanese, UK, and US scientists has been carried out in the developments of the X-ray detector and software.
