From Project Manager
The launch of the SELenological and ENgineering Explorer "KAGUYA", which will open up the 21st century's new lunar exploration era, is fast approaching.
The nickname for the lunar explorer SELENE, which was solicited from the general public, has been selected as the "KAGUYA."
The mission logo of SELENE (KAGUYA) shows a symbolic drawing of the Earth (right) and the Moon, which is our exploration object (left,) with a figurative “S” in-between as an “S” for SELENE and SELENE’s mission profile from the Earth to the Moon. It was designed by a student of School of Art and Design, University of Tsukuba.
