    "SPACE TOGO" in Aichi               Friday, February 13, 2015
    Today's mission for us, SPACE TOGO, was "Crew strength training” and “Do a space walk!".
    After warming up with the TOGO TAISO daily exercise, we emulated the set of workouts that are practiced by astronauts, such as squats and push-ups, learning from instruction pictures. Everyone looked very serious in doing the exercise.
    We then tried the spacewalking, which we crawled on hands and legs in the image of walking in space.
    Through these activities we grew friendship between crews and became more and more aware of our teamwork. We will continue to enjoy this challenge together with the crew members!

    「SPACE TOGO」in Aichi
    We took a special lecture by Mr. Aiba and Ms. Yamazaki of JAXA Tsukuba space center today.
    After warming up with “TOGO TAISO”, a body exercise that we always do, we got into the study time!
    It was enthusiastic to learn about space and astronauts, especially because we took the lecture through a videophone. Seeing the face of JAXA officers directly from the TV monitor was an experience we will never forget. Some of our friends even said they wanted to become astronauts.
