Congratulations to the Japanese on an apparently successful mission - hopefully a sample will be returned home successfully. And thanks to everyone here from Japan who has made it easier to follow this exciting mission over the past several hours. It seems I can go to sleep now wink.gif.

Here, here!

It's great to see how many Japanese members have joined this forum recently, thanks for all your help in keeping us filled in about this fantastic mission! biggrin.gif

FYI, here is another translation from the Japanese huge BBS 2-channel :-)
I cannot assure this post completely because it is anonymous-based BBS, but I strongly hope that it's true!
Thanks a lot for the LIPO-D gag team of this forum!

I got an e-mail personally from the ISAS blogger (He's my acquaintance).

- (snip)

- If I cannot update the blog because of access concentration, we will try to send you messages using a paper or something in front of the video camera.

- We are so encouraged that some of you are planning to send us LIPOVITAN-Ds for cheer us.

- But I drank only TWO bottles of the four. ;-)

Yes -- I'm going to have to retract some of the nasty things I've said recently about the management of Japan's space program. Japan finally seems on the verge of getting a very badly needed major success in their long-suffering space program, and congratulations to them. But my main fear is still that -- since they did it for only $150 million -- this may set off a trend back toward trying to fly seriously underfunded missions instead of recognizing that this success may have been an infrequent good-luck case.

Technologically, the main lesson seems to be that landing on a small body is simply difficult. Hayabusa's difficulties during its previous three landing maneuvers were apparently mostly because the surface of the asteroid was far rougher than expected -- pocked with very big, protruding individual boulders -- and this consistently confused the craft's laser altitude and obstacle sensors.

Great news so far! Add my high-five to the JAXA/ISAS team. Hopefully there's enough fuel left to bring the falcon home.

Thanks also to all the new UMSF members in Japan for keeping us in the loop.

Several japanese presses have reported that the metal ball was surely shot. Anyway, please wait for the official press release to get details. Stay tuned.

I would be in favour to perfect the design based on the lessons learnt, build a series of Hayabusas, and start visiting all the NEOs one by one. blink.gif

Definately!

There are a lot of different types of asteroid out there, I would say one of the best things that JAXA could do with there budget in the future would be to build 5 or 6 Hayabusa MkII's and send them to different types of NEO asteroid. That would be a fantastic set of missions, especially for less than $1billion!

Shame it won't happen.

Yes, JAXA people also seems to have such hope. In JAXA webpage, Prof. Fujiwara says in his personal opnion:
"Asteroids are classified by their reflection spectrum. Among various types, the S-type and the C-type are the most popular. Itokawa is a S-type asteroid. So I hope to plan a series of missions, for example, to go to S-type asteroids next. "

I hope so, but please don't start a new design from scratch.

Brief digests from Matsuura's blog:

- One of the thruster was uncontrollable after the lift-off from Itokawa.
- They decided to transit to the safe mode, in which all the thrusters stop.
- Hayabusa succeedingly entered to the safe mode "like a phoenix"
- In order to deal with the disorder in the thruster, data download was stopped temporally. So please wait for a while for data analysis results.
- The next press conference will be around 16:00pm in JST.

For details, please refer to the nicer translations by Mr. RogueEngineer in Matsuura's blog :-) http://smatsu.air-nifty.com/lbyd/
