Rising into space — micro-satellites and micro-rovers change the game | Kazuya Yoshida | TEDxTohoku

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Thank you for your requests for the English subtitles.
We are currently working on the English subtitles; however, they will take some time to publish as they require approval from TED as well. In the meantime, we will create a summary of the talk in English to be shared with you shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your kind patience.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
