  • Lightning observation by JEM-GLIMS was selected as "Top Discovery in the Micro Gravity".
  • JEM-GLIMS is a space mission to observe lightning and lightning-associated TLEs (sprites, elves) developed by Hokkaido Univ., Osaka Univ., Standord Univ., and other universities and institutes, which was launched by H-IIB from Tanegashima Space Center on July 2012. JEM-GLIMS was successfully installed at Exposed Facility (EF) of Japanese Experiment Module (JEM), International Space Station (ISS). JEM-GLIMS succeed in detecting thouthands of lightning events from ISS for the past two years. The results derived from JEM-GLIMS observations was selected as "Top Discovery in the Micro Gravity" during the ISS Research and Development Conference, which was held on June 17-19, 2014 in Chicago.
