NASA and Japanese Space Agency Discuss Space Cooperation

WASHINGTON -- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and the president of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) met in Washington Wednesday, July 10, to discuss the importance of international cooperation in space, especially the continued support for the International Space Station.

Bolden and Naoki Okumura also discussed NASA's plans for a new asteroid initiative, previously announced in President Obama's fiscal year 2014 budget proposal. Okumura welcomed the opportunity to discuss JAXA's potential contribution based on experience through its Hayabusa asteroid sample return mission. This is Okumura's first bilateral meeting with NASA since being named JAXA's president in April.
