50th Anniversary of the opening of Katsuura and Okinawa Tracking and Communications Stations!
We held special events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Katsuura and Okinawa Tracking and Communications Stations (in Katsuura on 27th of January 2018, and in Okinawa on 17th of February 2018). Thank you all for coming to the events! We held memorial lectures by Astronaut Yui at Katsuura Station, and Astronaut Oonishi at Okinawa Station and they talked about their experiences in space. There were other events such as exhibitions of drawings of children living in Katsuura and Onna village, and photographs of antennas from older days. We also had a demonstration of a test lunar rover. I am so happy to see a lot of people were having a good time. See you at the next event!
