The report has revealed today that the Japanese are set to develop a cargo spacecraft to transport materials to the space station. Her lunar exploration activities will officially commence this year.

The Asian giant will employ the United States’ rocket launch plan to land an unmanned probe on the moon for the first time in 2022 and launch two unmanned probes in 2023.

Japan will also construct cargo spacecraft to deliver supplies to the International Space Station. In 2022, Japan’s lunar exploration efforts will be officially initiated by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

After landing on the moon’s unmanned probe for the first time in February, Japan will employ the US rocket launch plan to launch two unmanned probes as early as 2022 and 2023.

It will also create a cargo ship for delivering supplies to the space station. Japan will demonstrate its international influence and foster the space sector’s development.

The two probes, “EQUULEUS” and “OMOTENASHI,” were the first to conduct lunar exploration missions. In addition, the latter intends to arrive on the moon. JAXA and the University of Tokyo produced these two probes, which are fewer than 40 cubic centimeters in size. They will test the flight and landing technology for flying to the moon with extremely little fuel.

Moreover, reports have revealed that the JAXA has designated the “SLIM” mission, which is set to launch in 2022, as a more formal technical verification of lunar exploration.

The goal is to keep the landing error range on the lunar surface within 100 meters. Based on this experience, Japan will develop its technology and, in collaboration with India, launch a new detector by 2023.

The objective is to locate the lunar polar regions, where ice and water are thought to exist on the lunar surface. Water is a vital resource in the evolution of the universe, and it may become a source of future international competition.
