Learning texts for individuals planning to undertake space exploration

Going forward, participation in space exploration is expected to be brisk in various countries, including those in Southeast Asia.
The teaching materials (English and Japanese) were established for people that plan to learn about and undertake space exploration going forward, including in the above countries.
This is available to promote Japanese technical prowess and provide added value in both the front-end and back-end.
