Send Your Name to Venus!

AKATSUKI by JAXAThe Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) planned to launch a spacecraft to Venus sometime next year. This Venus Climate Orbiter “AKATSUKI” (or Planet-C), as its name implies, will explore the climate of Venus such as unveil the mysteries of wind on Venus and observe the atmospheric movement and cloud formation process. Ultimately, this mission aims to deepen our understanding of the formation process of the Earth’s environment and its future by comparing Venus and the Earth.

JAXA would like to enhance people’s interest in space by holding a message campaign in which they invite the public to send messages that will be printed in fine letters on an aluminum plate and placed aboard AKATSUKI.
