The Planetary Society is collecting names and messages to be placed on its Lightsail-1 spacecraft...as well as another solar sail that will be launched with Japan's Akatsuki mission to Venus next year:

The DVD was installed on IKAROS last night.

The grammar is a bit off when you translate it on Google or Babylon.com, but you get the idea smile.gif

I think it says they received the DVD. The subsequent Tweet says it'll be mounted next week. At least that's what I think it means. The Google translation turns out a bit naughty. rolleyes.gif

I foresee many years of hilarity ahead as JAXA becomes a major player in UMSF!

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

The Babylon translation is even more horrendous. laugh.gif

If only there was an English version of the IKAROS Twitter page...like the main JAXA page
