Release on updated images of Kibo's internal drone "Int-Ball" (Int-Ball Letter Vol. 1)

Last Updated: July 25, 2017

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will release updated images and movies of the JEM Internal Ball Camera called "Int-Ball"--its first camera drone that can record video while moving in space under remote control from the ground. As the first "Int-Ball Letter vol. 1," we will introduce the movies of Int-Ball's arrival at the International Space Station (ISS) and its first successful autonomous flight.
