New ‘Space Exploration Course’ launched

WakayamaApril 8 (News about Japan) – A high school in Kushimoto City, Wakayama Prefecture, known for its civilian rocket launch site, has inaugurated a new course specializing in space studies and is holding an entrance ceremony for the first batch of students.

The newly established ‘Space Exploration Course’ at Kushimoto Kozu High School focuses on space and rockets and offers students lessons from former JAXA employees on topics including analyzing satellite data.

With the presence of a civilian rocket launch site in the city, the introduction of the ‘Space Exploration Course’ in the high school aims to attract students across the country, rejuvenate the city and produce future astronauts.

The seven incoming students who attended the ceremony were filled with anticipation.

A new student from outside the prefecture said, “I’m excited to learn about space as part of the first cohort. I’m looking forward to enjoying the year and getting used to Kushimoto.”

Although the course is primarily aimed at students attending science and engineering universities, the course also seeks to cater to those interested in space-related tourism and other humanities fields.
