Dewey's Forest Begins on board Kibo (January 4, 2010)

JAXA Education Payload Observation 4 (EPO4) "Dewey's Forest" began on board Kibo.

CERISE In-flight Experiment Completed (November 30, 2009)

CERISE, an experiment that investigates effects of microgravity on nematode C. elegans, which has been performed in the Cell Biology Experiment Facility (CBEF) onboard Kibo, was completed.

MAXI Acquired All-sky X-ray Image (November 26, 2009)

Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI), which is deployed and operated on Kibo Exposed Facility (EF), successfully acquired an all-sky X-ray image in the shortest time. It was the fastest all-sky X-ray image acquisition ever achieved by any other existing X-ray observation equipment.

Rad Silk experiment successfully completed! Embryonic development in the silkworm eggs confirmed on orbit! Data relating to the space radiation exposure effects on early embryonic development stage of the living organism obtained! (November 25, 2009)

Rad Silk, JAXA's biological experiment that investigate effects of space radiation on silkworm eggs, which has been performed using the CBEF onboard Kibo, successfully completed.

CERISE, JAXA's new life science experiment, which uses C. elegans as a model specimen, to examine genes involved in mechanisms of muscle mass increase / loss, began onboard Kibo (November 24, 2009)

CERISE, an experiment that investigates effects of microgravity on nematode C. elegans, began onboard Kibo using the Cell Biology Experiment Facility (CBEF).

Rad Silk Began onboard Kibo (November 19, 2009)

During the night of November 17, 2009, Rad Silk, JAXA's life science experiment that examines biological effects of space radiation using Cell Biology Experiment Facility (CBEF), began onboard Kibo

Space Seed, JAXA's long-term plant growth experiment, completed (November 12, 2009)

During the night of November 11, 2009, Space Seed, JAXA's first long-term plant growth experiment, was completed.

The first observation data from the SMILES (October 21, 2009)

According to 4-K supercooled superconducting detector,SMILES realises highly precised observation of Earth's atmospheric constituents than ever before.

Short-term harvest of the SpaceSeed performed onboard Kibo (October 15, 2009)

Short-term harvest of JAXA's long-term plant growth experiment, SpaceSeed, was performed onboard Kibo over the night of October 13, 2009.

SMILES's Initial Checkouts Began (September 25, 2009)

The Superconducting Submillimeter-Wave Limb-Emission Sounder (SMILES), jointly developed by JAXA and NICT, was installed on Kibo's Exposed Facility (EF) on September 25, 2009. Following the installation, the SMILES team activated the SMILES and began its initial function checkouts.
