JAXA/NASA Joint Workshop: Maximizing the Outcome of the ISS and "Kibo"
In December 2015, the governments of Japan and U.S. announced the establishment of the Japan-U.S. Open Platform Partnership Program regarding the cooperative operation of the International Space Station through at least 2024. Through this program, JAXA and NASA encourage researchers and entities from both countries to mutually utilize experiment hardware between the ISS U.S. National Laboratory and the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM, or Kibo, which means “hope” in Japanese). This JAXA/NASA Joint Workshop presents major achievements of ISS/Kibo utilization as well as Kibo’s available experiment hardware and services for potential users to maximize the outcome of “Kibo” and the ISS.Register now
