Hello Kitty's Space Mission

BoxedUpParty Hello Kitty Space Blog


How exciting, Hello Kitty is in Space and sending messages too.  The cute Japanese feline is circling the earth right now and raising awareness of the Japanese high-tech industry and celebrating her 40th Anniversary.

A 4 cm figure has been sent up in a mini satellite approximately the size of a large rubbish bin.  She is sat next to the window through which wonderful images of earth can be seen.  Above the window is a message board sending short messages in Japanese and English that have been sent to her by fans.


The $40 million project has been devised and carried out by The University of Tokyo’s Nano-Satellite Centre.  Its aim, according to Toshiki Tanaka the projects chief researcher is to “Stimulate scientific curiosity” and added “We can move their hearts.”  (Reuters)

This is not the first encounter that the Space Cat has had with the world of gravity defying space missions.  In 2013 a seventh grade Californian, Lauren Rojas, sent Hello Kitty up to the stratosphere in a high altitude space balloon. Take a look at the inspiring video on YouTube and share with your kids, it may inspire them to do something scientific or space related.

At BoxedUpParty we love Hello Kitty and offer a great range of Hello Kitty party supplies.  Check out our website for tableware, decorations and games for a fun party experience.

We’ll be sure to look out for more Hello Kitty stories for you in the run up to her 40th birthday so make sure you subscribe to the BoxedUpParty blog for more exciting Hello Kitty real life adventures.
