Talk:Japan announces moon program
Info from the SUBMIT STORY page - may be helpful to flesh out article:
Japan follows other nations in plans for manned spaceflight
Japan's Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA announced a comprehensive plan for its activities in space over the next 20 years. The plans culminate in a 2025 manned mission to the moon, but focus on heightened funding toward space technology and especially nanotech. The annoncement comes as a response to a 2004 government panel's recommendation that it focus on manned spaceflight.
Other nations, including Russia, China, the US, and India, have announced plans for a manned moon mission, though India later retracted its proposal. China sent its first taikonaut into orbit in October 2003.

- Thanks, Davodd! Amgine sent that material my way the moment he saw the link I had posted under Developing stories.
- I already used material from the China and Russia links. (They're cited in the Sources section.) The MSNBC link appears to duplicate material which is already cited in the article.
- Thanks for looking out for additional material.
