Air & Space:Konnichi wa, Kibo
Air & Space Magazine always has some great articles. I just got the new issue and read an article on the Japanese space program by U.S. astronaut Dan Barry. Barry spent some years in Japan as the NASA contact with the Japanese space agency (then NASDA, now JAXA). This is a timely article since the first section of the Japanese Kibo science lab has just arrived at the ISS on board STS-123. The article is already on line here. I also noticed that the Air & Space web site seems to have an improved design that makes it easier to browse through their extensive archives of articles on space and aviation topics. There is a lot of good stuff out there.
