As part of the NASA exhibition next year, a special exhibition will be held to commemorate Taiwan’s technological contributions to international space exploration.

Organizers of the Taiwan leg of the exhibition tour, say Taiwan’s National Space Organization has maintained technological cooperation with NASA, though the scope of the cooperation has not been well known in recent years due to complicated international political factors.
