Latest Japanese space program Stories
NanoRacks LLC announces the successful completion of an ambitious launch program for small satellites and in so doing has broken the record of the most CubeSats deployed in a single mission to
NASA launched its Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory from Tanegashima Space Center in Japan on Thursday. The spacecraft will help take rain and snow measurements and will eventually help scientists...
On Feb. 28 during a launch window that begins at 3:07 a.m. JST, the GPM Core Observatory is scheduled to blast into orbit aboard a Japanese H-IIA rocket. Due to the time difference with the United States, that's 1:07 p.m. EST on Feb. 27.
Tropical Cyclone Guito has been a powerful rainmaker, and fortunately, data from NASA's TRMM satellite shows that the heaviest rainfall has occurred over the open waters of the Mozambique Channel and not over land.

Some towering thunderstorms were spotted in Tropical Cyclone Fobane as NASA's TRMM satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean on February 10.
Astronomers, using the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) New Technology Telescope (NTT), have discovered that asteroids have a highly varied internal structure.
The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM satellite that observed the tropical low pressure area designated as System 91S earlier this week captured another look at a much weaker storm on January 30.
The TRMM satellite flew above a System 91S, a tropical low pressure area, in the Mozambique Channel on January 28, 2014 at 1011 UTC/5:11 a.m. EST. TRMM data collected with this pass may be helpful in evaluating this low for possible tropical cyclone formation.
