Astronaut Hoshide Begins to Tweet!
Astronaut Akihiko Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)
joined Twitter on October 14, 2011. Astronaut Hoshide has been assigned as a
flight engineer for the Expedition 32/33 crew to stay at the International Space
Station (ISS) for about six months from June 2012.
During his last mission to space, STS-124 (J1 mission,) Astronaut Hoshide became
the first Japanese to manipulate the ISS robotic arm, and conducted the assembly
operation of the Japanese Experiment Module "Kibo," including installing the
Kibo's Pressurized Module (PM) onto the ISS, moving the Experiment Logistics
Module Pressurized Section to the PM, activating the PM, and initializing the
Kibo's robotic arm. The mission this time is his second flight, and his first
long-term space stay and engagement in a space experiment.
On his Twitter page, he plans to introduce his training on the ground prior to
his space trip, then report on his collaborative work with the Kibo's operation
and control team based on his experience of daily ISS operations as a Capcom*.
He will also tweet about science experiments, and his feelings while preparing
for the mission, and during the mission.
JAXA will provide real-time information on activities at the ISS and Kibo
through the communication service tool, Twitter.
* Capcom: a Capsule Communicator who is in charge of communicating with
astronauts for the ISS control and operation.
