HTV-X is an uncrewed spacecraft now being developed by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) as the successor to its "Kounotori" HTV.

JAXA release (machine translated from Japanese)

The mission mark for HTV-X has been decided!

Based on the octagonal motif of the shape of the service module, which can be said to be a major feature of the appearance of the HTV-X, by expressing the majestic appearance of the HTV-X heading straight from Earth to the International Space Station and the moon ahead. It represents the "confidence" and "pride" of Japanese technology.

In addition, with the meaning of completing all missions and inheriting the gene of "Kounotori" that was retired in 2020, all nine "Kounotori" mission-colored stars were hidden around.

For HTV-X No. 1, the same gold color as Kounotori No. 9 is used as the mission color, which means that we will make a new start based on the history we have accumulated so far.
