Ground control to Major Takashi and crew: Japanese Guerilla Paparazzi go to space!
Japanese Guerilla Paparazzo Takashi and his crew will join the spacecraft OSIRIS-REx to travel to the asteroid Bennu in September 2016. The “We The Explorers” – campaign invited the public to take part in this mission by expressing, through art, how the mission’s spirit of exploration is reflected in their own lives. Nine members of the Japanese Guerilla Paparazzi seized the opportunity and will be aboard this space mission (see picture above), saved on a chip on the NASA spacecraft. It’s U.S. mission to return samples from an asteroid to Earth, addressing multiple NASA Solar System Exploration objectives and certainly the first mission with Japanese Guerilla Paparazzi!
