Hideo Itokawa (1912-1999) is regarded as the Father of Japanese rocketry. An aerospace engineer, Itokawa initiated Japan's first launch tests of the solid rocket series called "Pencil" in 1955. Under his unique vision and strong leadership, his rockets reached space by 1960 and put Japan's first satellite into orbit in 1970.
