The official unit of all future photographic scale references on Ryugu is now the "Aldrin". laugh.gif


Remarkable to consider that some of those human-sized boulders 'weigh' less than a kilo. Aldrin could be chucking them all over the place. (...slowly).

JAXA announced that live navcam image updates are over for this operation: https://twitter.com/haya2e_jaxa/status/1047724464056782853

[MASCOT] October 4 at 13:20 JST: The spacecraft is still hovering at an altitude of about 3km, but the real-time broadcast of the navigation images captured by the ONC-W1 has ended. Thank you for watching! http://www.hayabusa2.jaxa.jp/en/galleries/onc/nav20181002/ #AsteroidLanding

Here's all the images assembled into an animation

The 3km hover phase at the end gives a nice feel for the rotation

Mission finished. If accomplished... who knows?

The DLR boffins seem much slower in releasing images than their JAXA counterparts and less concerned with public relations generally. (The goofy first-person tweets do not count.) All that data has to have been transmitted from the surface already, since the batteries have died so perhaps waiting on board Hayabusa.

remember Philae, Rosetta's OSIRIS etc. and don't hold your breath for new images.
We have to hope for some embedded scientist to release all the images as someone did for Huygens.

In the press conferences yesterday, it was said, that all data will be downloaded from Hayabusa2 on Friday. Considering, that we got updates nearly every 2 h yesterday from the leading members of the MASCOT team, who were surely occupied otherwise, I think the DLR already did a great job covering the event. Ok, compared to thier performance in this regard on other projects.
Also, JAXA has some nice live coverages, but only with the wide field camera. From all the other instruments, and the MINERVAs, too, the data release is not immediate. We have to remember, which agency does the mission and under what premise. I am not sure about JAXA, but thier main "audience" is Japanese. For Rosetta, ESA was bound by contracts to the very slow release of data that we see now. Maybe not suited for todays culutre, but it was fine at the time the mission was planned. Yes, NASA is very open, but that's how it sees its role in the USA. Concerning the DLR, the culture in Germany is not so much the US view of "tax-payers money, so show the results to the tax-payer", but more state funded research. So the obligation to publicly present the work is far less.

This being said: Where are the images from MASCOT from the surface?? wink.gif

As a comparison - the camera on MASCOT ( MasCam ) is somewhat related to the CIVA cameras on Philae.

4 CIVA images were released to the public after Philae's landing

The full CIVA data was finally released to the ESA PSA in August of this year. That's 13.5 years after the first data was collected by CIVA and 3 years after the end of Philae's mission

Patience is going to be required. Lots of it.

We have been thoroughly spoiled by MER, MSL, Cassini and New Horizons. It is quite apparent that other agencies do not consider that kind of image release policy to be the new normal.

"Inside Information" from a participant of the IAC: There is going to be a press conference at the IAC tomorrow (Friday) at 6:30 UTC, so in about nine hours. But I haven't seen any announcements, tweets so far.

It would be better if everyone would follow rule 2.6. Your comments will be deleted. rolleyes.gif Or does rule 2.6 apply only to NASA missions? huh.gif

Edit: I see, Lex Sternia! laugh.gif

Don't think so, thanks for the reminder.
