Japan has its own space agency (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA) and has been taking an important role in space activities. Furthermore, many new space ventures and efforts as a private sector are started to show up in Japan. Space activities among the young people are of course vigorous and passionate, including the SGAC activities in Japan.
Overview of Activities
In Japan, we have met a lot of space colleagues in the world through SGAC activities, SGC, and other aerospace events. We hope to develop more real business relationships with them. We are now focusing on communicating well with each SGAC Japan member, keeping in touch with the participants of the past SGCs and spreading the word about the great experiences in SGAC to space enthusiasts in Japan.
Visions of SGAC Japan:
- To communicate well with each SGAC Japan member
- To keep in touch with the participants of the past SGCs
- To spread the word about the great experiences in SGAC to space enthusiasts in Japan
- To encourage more members from Japan to participate in SGC
- To warmly welcome SGAC members who visit Japan
SGAC Japan members network is accessible via the SGAC Japan mailing list group!
Let’s challenge ourselves together to open up new access to space with passion, creativity, and strong will!
