Japan is one of the leading nations in the fields of scientific research, particularly technology, machinery and biomedical research. Nearly 700,000 researchers share a US$130 billion research and development budget, the third largest in the world.[92] Japan is a world leader in fundamental scientific research, having produced fifteen Nobel laureates in either physics, chemistry or medicine,[93] three Fields medalists[94] and one Gauss Prize laureate.[95]

Some of Japan's more prominent technological contributions are found in the fields of electronics, automobiles, machinery, earthquake engineering, industrial robotics, optics, chemicals, semiconductors and metals. Japan leads the world in robotics production and use, possessing more than half (402,200 of 742,500) of the world's industrial robots used for manufacturing.[96] It also produced QRIO, ASIMO and AIBO. Japan is the world's largest producer of automobiles[97] and home to four of the world's fifteen largest automobile manufacturers and seven of the world's twenty largest semiconductor sales leaders as of today.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is Japan's space agency that conducts space and planetary research, aviation research, and development of rockets and satellites. It is a participant in the International Space Station and the Japanese Experiment Module (Kibo) was added to the International Space Station during Space Shuttle assembly flights in 2008.[98] It has plans in space exploration, such as launching the Venus Climate Orbiter (PLANET-C) in 2010,[99][100] developing the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter to be launched in 2013,[101][102] and building a moonbase by 2030.[103]

On September 14, 2007, it launched lunar orbit explorer "SELENE" (Selenological and Engineering Explorer) on an H-IIA (Model H2A2022) carrier rocket from Tanegashima Space Center. SELENE is also known as Kaguya, the lunar princess of the ancient folktale The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.[104] Kaguya is the largest lunar probe mission since the Apollo program. Its mission is to gather data on the moon's origin and evolution. It entered into a lunar orbit on October 4,[105][106] flying in a lunar orbit at an altitude of about 100 km (62 mi).[107]

Japan is definitely very technologically advanced. I actually believe that they were the first to travel to the moon. Do the research, their moon orbiter has found no evidence of the Apollo missions. If we had actually gone to the moon, there would be equipment there. There is no evidence of this.
