Japanese Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan has left Tokyo for Davos, Switzerland.
Davos in 1930's and 1940's:
He does not speak fluent English, but I suppose only a few can speak fluent Japanese in Davos, though so many rich people are gathering from Europe, America, Asia, and so on.
CHAPTER I: Rockets and Artificial Satellites
I-1: Overview & Global Trend
Some people wrongly think that China is more advanced concerning rockets and high-speed trains than Japan.
It is wrong, as China was simply helped by the Soviet Union in the rocket field, and stole technology from Japan in the high-speed train sector.
After WWII, Japan developed its own rocket technology without help from the U.S.
Japan has more satellites or payloads in orbit than China has as of 2010.

I-2: International Space Station and Japan's Konotori
Japan is also one of major contributors to operation and maintenance of the International Space Station.
Japan cargo shuttle hooks up with space station
Astronauts use robotic arm to bring in craft laden with supplies
By Denise Chow
An unmanned Japanese cargo spaceship safely arrived at the International Space Station on Thursday, delivering tons of provisions for the station and its crew members...
Station astronauts Cady Coleman and Paolo Nespoli maneuvered the station's robotic arm to grab the cylindrical Kounotori 2 vehicle as it came within 33 feet (10 meters) of the space station. They then worked to attach it to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module.
The successful capture of Kounotori 2 — also known as the H-2 Transfer Vehicle 2, or HTV-2 — was confirmed at 6:41 a.m. ET.
"We have HTV-2 in our grasp," Coleman said.
When the Space Shuttle is retired, this Japan's space cargo ship will be the only large-scale means to deliver stuff and materials to the ISS flying around the earth.
I-3: World Top 5 Rockets
Japan's HIIB rocket is one of the top 5 powerful rockets in the world, though China has a No.6 rocket.
Top 5 Biggest Rocket that Ever Created in the World
1. Proton (Russia)
The first Proton was launched in 1965 and the launch system is still used in 2009, which makes it one of the most successful proponents of gravity in space history. It has a height of 53m.
2. Falcon 9 (USA - Space X)
Falcon 9 is a two-stage can be used to orbit; oil and liquid oxygen rocket-powered launch vehicles manufactured by Space X. The rocket is still in development and will be launched in late 2009. This rocket has a height of 178 feet.
3. H-IIB (JAPAN)
H-IIB rocket with liquid fuel is made in Japan that provides a launching system for the main purpose of launching the H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV) to the International Space Station (ISS). It has a height of 56m.
4. Space shuttle (USA)
Now here comes with sophisticated machines are the shuttle. Made in the USA, the Space Shuttle is being used to deliver cargo into orbit with a medium-size and operated by a crew of seven men. Space Shuttle has a height about 184 feet.
5. Ariane 5 (Europe - ESA)
Ariane 5's first flight test that failed in June 1996, with self-destruction during the 37 seconds after launch because of damage to the control software, which is undoubtedly one of the most expensive computer bugs in history. This rocket has a height of 193 feet.
(In terms of payloads to be lifted up to a lower orbit, the ranking order is probably Falcon 9, Space Shuttle, Proton, Ariane 5, and HIIB.)
I-4: Japan's Moon Mission
In 2008, Japan has successfully put its exploration vehicle on the orbit around the moon to take video pictures and collect various scientific data.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) successfully captured a movie of the "Full Earth-Rise"*1 using the onboard High Definition Television (HDTV) of the lunar explorer "KAGUYA" (SELENE) on September 30, 2008 (Japan Standard Time, JST, all the following dates and time are JST.) The KAGUYA is currently flying in a lunar orbit at an altitude of about 100 km.

Egypt has 'conclusive' evidence that Al Qaeda group was behind church bombing
Palestinian militants linked to Al Qaeda are blamed in the New Year's Day attack that killed 25 Coptic Christians. With foreigners named as the culprits, religious tensions may ease.
January 24, 2011 By Jeffrey Fleishman, Los Angeles Times
Reporting from Cairo — The Egyptian government announced Sunday that it had "conclusive proof" that an Al Qaeda-linked Palestinian militant group orchestrated the New Year's Day bombing outside a Coptic Christian church that killed 25 worshipers and exacerbated sectarian tensions across Egypt.
"Unlike natural desires a man has, his respect for justice is not innate.
He must observe and think about events around him to have respect for justice.
Orientation toward justice is not natural for a man; it must come from the outside."
