Special Feature: Indian Space Development and Japan-India Cooperation
In August, India launched its lunar probe "Chandrayaan" (lunar vehicle) No. 3, embarking on exploration using its observation vehicle (as well as exploration by its observation vehicle). India became the fourth country in the world to succeed in a soft landing on the Moon. Japan also succeeded in launching a lunar landing demonstration vehicle in September. Lunar exploration is not only an important first step in space development, but also has military implications. Although Japan and India have cooperated in space development for many years, it is also important to determine what kind of cooperative relationship the two countries will have in the future. Therefore, we requested space experts from Japan and India to contribute their articles regarding the two countries’ aims and their cooperative relationship.
