Bilateral partners in next NASA moon mission?


Canada will build the Canadarm3, an autonomous robotic arm that will be used to maintain the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) planned space station. NASA is also preparing its next manned mission to the moon for 2024. In an October 25 report from Spaceflight Now, Hiroshi Yamakawa, president of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, said that Japan would support exploration activities and surface exploration, which he hopes will lead to a Japanese astronaut on the mission. Sylvain Laporte, president of the Canadian Space Agency, said that Canada was the program’s first international partner.
