JAXAs Hayabusa2 probes Asteroid Ryugu
23 March 2019 Current Affairs: Hayabusa2, a Japanese spacecraft, has surveyed the asteroid Ryugu's surface and landed multiple robotic probes on its rocky terrain. The findings of the probe are: Asteroid Ryugu is far drier than expected. Ryugu is quite young (by asteroid standards), at around 100 million years old, this suggests its parent body was much largely devoid of water, too. Ryugu has an oblate "spinning top" shape, which suggests that the rocky body may have once spun at twice its current rate. Hayabusa2 has completed the touchdown manoeuvre to collect samples from Ryugu's surface, which will be brought back to Earth in a return capsule in late 2020.
Hayabusa2:
♦ Hayabusa2 is an asteroid sample-return mission of the Japanese space agency, JAXA
♦ It is the successor of Hayabusa which had returned asteroid samples in 2010
