Samples were taken from the Japanese aerospace research agency (Jaxa) during a space mission from the asteroid Ryugu, 300 million kilometers from Earth. Japanese scientists say this is the first time that a space capsule and asteroid samples have successfully arrived in Australia.
According to DHA News, The Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa 2, which sent a capsule a year ago to receive surface samples from the asteroid Ryugu, 300 million kilometers from Earth, announced the arrival of the first samples.
300 km from the world.
During the space mission conducted by the Japan Aerospace Research Agency (JACSA), 1 year ago, the spacecraft Hayabusa 2 was commissioned to receive surface samples from the asteroid Ryugu, 300 million kilometers from Earth.
Hayabusa 2, which landed on the surface of Ryugu, sent sub-surface samples from the asteroid to Earth in a capsule. The capsule, which contains samples from asteroids, successfully reached the Woomera region in Australia yesterday. Japanese and Australian scientists tested the capsule from where it landed in the lab.
The first in space history
For the first time in space history, Japanese scientists obtained underground samples from one of the oldest objects in the Solar System, the Rugby. By examining these examples, scientists will learn how the solar system evolved. In Japanese, Ryugu means “Dragon Palace” and is the name of a beach on the beach in Japanese folklore.
