JAXA EPO activities

Two JAXA EPO activities are scheduled in Stage 17A.

ISS Moon Score

Exposure settings:

Mode - Manual

Shutter speed - 1/500

Aperture - f/8

  • Camera setting (Step 1)

  • JPM window shutter open (Step 2)


  • Photographing with 200mm Lens (Step 3.1)

  • Photographing with 400mm Lens (Step 3.2)

Photo session

  • - 80 photos or more are required in approx. 5 minutes per lens.

  • Moon positions are preferably variable in the view. Variety of moon position due to naturally floating photographer in micro-g environment is desired in order to make a natural variety of sound fluctuations in music.

  • JPM window shutter closed (Step 4)

  • Image data save on SSC (Step 5)

  • Camera stowage (Step 6)


Step numbers in the flow correspond to the ODF steps.

Dewey’s Forest Setup

  • Plant Unit Case assembling (Steps 1 to 2)

  • Plant Unit Case installation under GLA in JPM (Step 3)

Plant Unit Case setup

Step numbers in the flow correspond to the ODF steps.

  • Plant Units retrieval from MELFI

  • Watering plant seeds in Plant Units

  • Plant Unit installation into Plant Unit Case

Before cultivation

  • Cultivation for two months

  • Watering once a week (TBD)


  • Create space garden by connecting Plant Units

  • Discussionamong crews on their idea and view of nature

  • Video shooting of created space garden and discussion

After cultivation
