On November 18, 2022, I had the honor of witnessing the signing of the Lunar Orbital Gateway Implementing Arrangement by MEXT Minister Nagaoka and NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, as well as the Minister’s announcement of the Japanese Government’s participation in the extension of ISS operations until 2030.
We are determined to make Low Earth Orbit a “place for sustainable social and economic activities” in the near future, and to promote “sustainable exploration activities” on the Moon and Mars. I would like to ask for your continued support of these human spaceflight activities.
