Hayabusa May Have Retrieved Extraterrestrial Samples

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) announced yesterday that they may have found particles of extra-terrestrial origin in the sample container brought back by the Hayabusa space capsule, which touched down in southern Australia in June after a four-year mission to retrieve a sample from the S-type asteroid 25143 Itokawa, discovered in 2000.

    “you’d really really hope so .. otherwise it was a nice drive-by .. or an expensive date!”

    Naw, it’s still worth something. No one else on Earth has gone to an asteroid or comet, landed, and come back intact. And the Japanese did it by spending, I think, considerably less than (e.g., NASA) would have spent to do the equivalent. Hayabusa will properly go down in the record books, no matter what!
