Dear supporters of the Venus Climate Orbiter AKATSUKI
Despite the unfortunate accident in 2010, AKATSUKI narrowly succeeded in becoming an orbiter of Venus on December 7, 2015, and has continued to acquire data for the study of the Venusian atmosphere ever since. This mission, which was made possible by ISAS's traditional management scheme, has come to this point, with everyone's persistence, each time we have had a close call. We are proud of the quality of the data we have obtained, which is leading the world's research on Venusian meteorology, and we are also proud of the enthusiasm of everyone who has supported the AKATSUKI mission. We will lead this mission as much as possible. I would like to ask for your continued support.
