As a life scientist, Ryoko has explored the great mysteries of the biology of the human body, the internal space, to find an answer to the question “what is life?” But she has noticed that one of the important answers for this question might be in "outer space". To find this answer, she tried to apply for an astronaut examination in 2008. But she failed, because her height was 2 cm short of the medical standard required in the application.
Fortunately, a chance has come for this little woman to go to “Mars”! She is going to participate as a crew Biologist, and research the distribution of bacteria in the soils that a Rover will harvest, to reveal the contamination levels of bacteria derived from human activities on “Mars”. Also, as a Health and Safety Officer, she will manage the crewmembers’ health and promote a clean HAB environment. Her management strategy will be based on the Japanese domestic lifestyle, which will be adaptive and sustainable on Mars. These valuable experiments will surely take her to the real outer space someday, to find a true answer to her important question. The photos depict the day when she first walked, and she grown-up with the dreams of flying to space!
