About AKARI

AKARI is Japan's first dedicated infrared astronomical satellite (and the second infrared space mission following IRTS) launched on February 22, 2006. AKARI's primary mission is to carry out the all-sky survey with the best sensitivity, spatial resolution and the widest wavelengths.

Detailed information can be found at the AKARI project page.
