Sora to Sora

"Sora to Sora" is a public relations magazine introduces activities of Aerospace Research and Development Directorate, JAXA. We have been developing technical research relative to "Sora (the sky)" is where planes fly and "Sora (space)" is where spacecraft fly for the further development of aerospace technology. Please take a look at the activities through "Sora to Sora"
