January 16, 2003 Guests
Guest : British National Space Center
Via teleconference from Miraikan, Director Mohri participated in an event held for elementary school students at the British National Space Center.
The six astronauts who made a space shuttle flight to the International Space Station in October 2002 where they successfully carried out an assembly mission gathered at this event.
A member of this crew, British astronaut Piers Sellers (top left photo) trained together with Director Mohri at NASA for a period of two years starting in 1996. In their training days, the astronauts would often get together and cook dishes from their home countries. By the way, Director Mohri's specialty is curry and its taste is out of this world!
There were discussions on a variety of topics, from episodes of mission completion to talk about the Japanese Experiment Module "Kibo."
