After an accident of the Space Shuttle "Colombia" in January 2002, STS-114 of the Space Shuttle "Discovery" which had been prepared for the Return-To-Flight was launched successfully on July 26, 2005 and returned to the ground safely on August 9, 2005. A Japanese Astronaut Noguchi performed three times of extravehicular activity (EVA) successfully during the shuttle mission. I stayed as one of JAXA support group members from its launching to the return in the U.S., and had a very valuable experience through this activity. At first I would like to thank people concerned particularly.
