Congratulations on the successful orbit and verification of some of the instrumentation functionality! My best wishes for success of the next phase, orbit correction and full instrument verification. I look forward to seeing and hearing of all the wonders that the Akatsuki team will surely discover.

Congratulations to JAXA/ISAS on an amazing piece of space navigation.

Joshua from LouisianaDec. 11, 2015 07:23

What an amazing feat! You all should be very proud. Your fellow citizens should be even more proud for such an outstanding display of skill, intelligence, hard work and dedication!

I will be telling my daughter this example of working as hard as one can and never giving up on a problem. Thank you for the great example!

Congratulations to you all! おめでとう!

Keep up the good work and looking forward to the results!

R. A.Dec. 11, 2015 05:05

Congratulations! Doing it once is a great achievement. Doing it twice is even bigger! May we have a lot of images, learn a lot about Venus poles and guess if someone, in the future, can send a probe to one of them. Greetings from Cali, Colombia!

E' un grande successo della tecnologia giapponese ed è un successo per scienziati ed uomini che hanno dato il meglio di se stessi per realizzare questa impresa. Un doppio successo in quanto -dopo un lancio ed un viaggio perfetto avvenuto cinque anni fa, ora gli scienziati giapponesi sono riusciti a recuperare l'obiettivo di una missione che sembrava perduta.

Incredible accomplishment. Wishing Akatsuki and team good luck from Colorado, USA

Gentlemen / Ladies of team Akatsuki (Planet - C):

Congratulations from a fellow scientist from the United States! Your ambition and extreme patience in maintaining and then resurrecting Akatsuki probe five years after the original engine mishap has paid off. Even if you don't get 100% of your objectives, even if the orbit isn't optimal, you demonstrated incredible pluck where most space programs would have been resigned to the loss. The reward is a unique presence, around Venus at this moment in history, and one hell of a story to go along with it! Welcome to the club!

Anna & MartaDec. 7, 2015 16:06

Go Akatsuki and Control Team!
Best wishes from two Polish fans- Marta, Keio Daigaku graduate, and Anna, Tokyo GeiDai PhD student :)
