The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has disclosed "Int-Ball Letter" Vol. 4 in which the latest video of the Kibo's internal drone on the International Space Station is presented.

This time, we will report that JAXA Development Team introduced Int-Ball to Astronaut Norishige Kanai, who is going to have a long-duration stay on the International Space Station around December 2017.
