The lecturer, Dr. Kazutaka Nishiyama, associate professor of the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science is well known as an expert in ion engine and the former operation foreman for the team of Asteroid Exploer, Hayabusa. Students listened closely to Dr. Nishiyama during his lecture in English and Japanese about the Hayabusa project with using actual video images.
