Sankei front-paged an interview with Embassy NASA Attaché Garvey McIntosh in which he reportedly noted that Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi will be the only non-American to fly on a U.S.-launched SpaceX Dragon rocket to the International Space Station later this year. According to the U.S. official, a Japanese astronaut may also be able to explore the moon as Japan is a close partner of NASA’s Artemis program that aims to send a manned mission to the Moon by 2024.
