ISS Norishige Kanai

Selected for ISS mission

27 Aug, 2015

Kanai will travel into space in 2017 aboard Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft. He will stay at the International Space Station for about six months from around November of that year.

I am very proud that I was commissioned for such an important mission. I am determined to work hard through training and aim to proudly report space science and experiment results to the Japanese people in two years through contributions to breathtaking and innovative experiments that will surprise world scientists and researchers.
