August 7, 1985

On This Day In History! in 1985 – Takao Doi, Mamoru Mohri and Chiaki Mukai were chosen as Japan’s first astronauts. The astronauts were trained to fly and operate the ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam and took it on its first test flight on October 3, 1986. Also on October 3, 1986, Mothra and Gamera flew over Mount Fuji and engaged in an odd and disturbing mating flight and surprised a busload of Australian tourists and a cabal of geologists who were studying the volcano. The astronauts were instructed to take the Destiny Gundam for a closer flyby of the amorous monsters and take as many hentai pictures as possible. During one close flyby, the Destiny Gundam was captured by Gamera and eaten, along with the three tasty astronauts inside.
