The Cosmos Blog


The Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS)  is one of four sectors within the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA): Japan’s national aerospace organisation. ISAS is focussed on scientific research conducted in space, from satellites orbiting the Earth to spacecraft exploring the Solar System and experiments onboard the International Space Station. 

This blog highlights on-going projects and news from ISAS researchers. The articles are written by Elizabeth Tasker (Associate Professor, Division of Solar System Sciences) in collaboration with project scientists and engineers. The main website for ISAS (both in English and Japanese) can be found here (and linked from the bottom of the page).
