Dear ISWI Participant:

Today, I forward a letter from the space agency of Japan (JAXA) that I regard as a very important announcement and opportunity. You will find this letter reproduced below in its entirety.

It mentions "an excellent remuneration package". It really is. This opportunity to work at JAXA should be considered by all young persons engaged in the field of space science. It is a "game changer" for your career.

Do not consider only the technical merits of this opportunity. This opportunity also provides the chance to make key, life-long personal contacts that will prove to be invaluable in any long-term career in this line of work. The application dead line is set at the end of August.

Cordially yours,
George Maeda
