Hayabusa re-entry spectacular fireball.

Posted by 3citynewswire on 06/13/2010

Five years after touching down on a distant asteroid, Japan’s Hayabusa space probe returned to Earth on Sunday, landing in the Australian Outback after a spectacular fireball. Recorded from NASA DC-8 over Australia

Officials at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) aren’t sure whether the probe managed to collect samples from asteroid Itokawa after its three-month rendezvous with the small space rock in 2005. They would be the first samples returned from the surface of an asteroid.

The probe burned up on reentry, streaking through the night sky (see video here), and Hayabusa’s heat-resistant container landed with the aid of a parachute in South Australia’s Woomera Prohibited Range.

    I’m now not certain the place you’re getting
    your info, however good topic. I needs to spend some time finding
    out much more or understanding more. Thank you for excellent info I
    used to be looking for this information for my
    mission.

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
