An event of project for space education “Mission ZERO” was held at Miraikan hall in Daiba at March 7.
We participated in it and introduced flexible structure, Miura-ori, SEEDS and Cansats. Also we held an special event of receiving of SEEDS with a handmade Yagi-antenna.
More than 800 people visited and many of them were elementary school students. They were very interested in large origami with size of about 1 meter and engineering model of SEEDS. In the receiving event I was impressed by their smiles when they hear digi-talker from SEEDS with their handmade antenna. I was also glad because of their surprised expression for a decorded picture of SSTV. I hope these experiences impressed on children’s heart.

We went to sightseeing at Nagatoro in Chichibu, Saitama. Dr.Miyazaki said the travel of laboratory is the first time in this seven years, so this is the first time for us. We must enjoy these two days.

The movement from loboratory to Nagatoro has five hours by a sightseeing bus.
Fine name. Empresses

The bus reached Nagatoro in the afternoon, Some took a walk and enjoyed old and good town along Arakawa river and tastes Kakigori made of natural water.
Arakawa river and national boat a feature of this town, SL

We enjoyed white water rafting at Arakawa river as a leisure of the first day. The length of the course was about seven kiro-meters. Many of us dropped out from the boat. We could feel the great nature of Nagatoro.
Member and the boat This is the first time of rafting for everyone.

The night events were BBQ, firework, and drinking party. As this laboratory reraly has such a drinking party, we had some tension at first... but everyone started to talk by degrees and finaly the party got to a fine atmosphere.

In the next day, we woke up at eight o'clock. We left a hotel at ten o'clock and went to grape hunting. A roof of ivy was very low and everyone eat the grapes with legs and bodies ache. Freshly-picked grapes were very sweet and tasty.

After grape hunting, the final event was a tour of sake brewery and sake tasting. The great sake brewery has a well, which has the natural water from Mt.Buko. A host person was very clever. He lectured us how deal with sake. Every sakes we tasted were very creative and testy so everyone chose his promising-looking brand and bought for souvenir. This tour was very nice and we absorbed so much by it.
great well sake tasting

We played many games in a return journey in a bus.
This travel was very exciting from start to finish. As a matter of fact, some members were not expected at first. However,everyone enjoyed this travel and agreed, "Let's do it in a next week, too!"It was burst into orbit only because of a dedicated steward.
It was a nice travel.
very dedicated steward I want to go next year, too.

We are developing BBM of "SPROUT" which is nano satellite following "SEEDS" now.SPROUT's mission is expansion experiment of gossamer structure. The details will be announced at HP. We are creating SPROUT's HP, please wait for a brief while.The progress in development is early phase of BBM, and we are going to radiology examination to decide electronic component and mission duration.

null


Well, in April, a lot of new students entered in Nano Satellite Project! We are slightly bewildered by too much students, but we want to make the best together. I think that it is great of them to take over this project.

One year passed from the launch of SEEDS II on April 28.
The mission of SEEDS II proceeded smoothly, and achieved one year that was the design life of SEEDS II.
Your continuing support and cooperation have been instrumental in the progress we have operated by SEEDS II to date.
In addition, we were issued from the AMSAT-NA Cubstat OSCAR- 66(CO-66) to Our satellite SEEDS II.
We really appreciate you receiving signals from SEEDS II everyday.

Please continue your favors toward the reception cooperation about SEEDS II in the future.
Thank you very much!

16th Nov.(Sun), there was an event that the magazine "Child's science" plans,we received digi-talker with children at Mt.Tsukuba.
リンク:http://cqwires.com/junior/
Though it was rainy day, amateur radio operators and their family, about 20 people participated in this event.

it was raining 2nd pass

In this event, SEEDS(EM:Engineering Model) was displayed. Children saw SEEDS with great interest.

Children saw SEEDS with great interest

Then one of project menber experienced radio contact.

The first contact

In this event, we experienced amateur radio contact and got a lot of advice from amateur radio operators, so we learned a lot.
Moreover, seeing children who were great interest by SEEDS, it was felt that also the event like today lead to the space development in the future. We want to keep doing activity,like this event,that interest in space extends to a lot of people.

We stopped over at "Gama"cave(Gama=toad) on our way back. It was wonder zone...
