There is a well-established link between the Christian Doppler Foundation and Japanese scientists. Now the renowned Japanese astronomer Prof. Masanori Iye volunteered to translate the website of the Foundation into Japanese.

Kaneko ). Prof Peter Schuster (†), an active member of the Foundation for many years, wrote an article for Osaka University’s newsletter (vol. 64): “The Search for Shigeo Satomura“,
