Japanese Cargo Ship Success

Amazingly while many of us were getting excited that Space-X had finally put America back in the launch business after the demise of the shuttle program, quietly (at least, I certainly missed it and I check BBC news website every day) the Japanese have just sent their own ship off to the Space Station!!

Not to be sneezed at – the ship is carrying FIVE TONS of stuff up there including a fishtank.  Article here worth reading. The plan with the fishtank is to breed 3 generations of fish in space – never done before – so they can see how they come on. Imagine that – legally the children will be off-worlders!
