To scientists Solar system The study, which is expected to provide information that will enable them to better understand its origin, is now almost over. With the vehicle returning to earth tonight, your mission space part will be completed.
He had taken an example a year ago
About a year ago Hayabusa2, Ryugu asteroidinden he managed to collect stone samples. The orbital diameter of this asteroid was calculated to be approximately 300 million kilometers. The vehicle finally came close to completing the journey to Earth.
JAXA engineers said that the sample capsule in the vehicle was approximately 220 thousand kilometers He stated that he left the distance and the operation was started for fine control. The arrival of the capsule will be broadcast live.

Broadcast to be made From 70 to 90 minutes will have a period of time. The capsule will enter the atmosphere from a distance of 75 kilometers from the earth. In the last 10 kilometers, the parachute of the capsule will be opened. Afterwards, its landing will be expected.
JAXA uses various systems to comfortably receive signals from the landing area. satellites will also use. The capsule will send signals of its exact position continuously after landing. The team also sailor radars, dronelar and helicopters will also use. Thus, samples collected from the capsule and asteroid can be examined as soon as possible.
