Japans space yacht starts sailing to the International Space Station for the first time

Japans space yacht starts sailing to the International Space Station for the first time.

Japanese space agency Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has launched the space probe Takuya at 5:42 a.m. local time, according to its mission.

Takuya, named after former astronauts and science workers who made the pioneering contribution of the Takuya mission, includes cameras and a probe carrying a scientific instrument capable of transmitting data about Saturn’s moon Mimas to ground-based observatories, and three small pieces of technology — a robotic arm for moving the probe, and a radar dish mounted to an orbiter for communication and mapping to Earth.

Takuya was launched from the Atami space center, and its probe is expected to enter into Saturn’s atmosphere at about the same time as the probe launched from Tanegashima, Japan, earlier this month, and will arrive safely at the Tanegashima orbit after leaving the spacecraft.

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency launched the Takuya probe to ISS after completing a 5-month journey that included 16 days on the ground at Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) headquarters in Chiba, about 100 kilometers east of Tokyo. The spacecraft was launched from Hachioji in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan.

Takuya has six scientific instruments that it can carry and has previously provided the scientific community with images and other data about Mimas in the early우리카지노 21st century, which will allow researchers to better understand the moon’s composition and structure, among other things. The Takuya spacecraft was built by Japanese manufacturer Toshiba Aerospace S바카라ystems.

The spacecraft was launched from Hachioji in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan.

The Takuya space probe will be flying aboard Japanese space station Tanegashima until the spacecraft reaches its initial station station destination on 3 October in what is known as Progress MS-08. The unmanned spacecraft will return to Earth on 14 October to join Tanegashima’s orbiting outpost on the moon Mimas.

“Takuya will carry and study our way through the solar system, helping to improve scientific knowledge and understanding of our own planet’s mysterious solar system,” sai
