QUOTE (Paolo @ Jun 17 2018, 09:49 AM) *
I wonder if the apparent equatorial ridge is merely an effect of Ryugu spinning around the axis of maximum inertia, or if it formed from loose material pooling on the equatorial plane as in the case of asteroid Steins.
we will soon know: if the ridge is cratered the former is true, if it's smooth it's the latter. I am betting on the latter, as equatorial ridges seem to be common on small, relatively fast-spinning objects.


Is that the case at Steins? It seems fairly uniformly cratered (including the equator) as far as can be seen at the limited resolution available

I think certainly the case for ring-embedded moons (e.g. Pan, Atlas and Daphnis) but for obvious reasons in their case. I'm going for the former for Ryugu.

Just a guess though smile.gif

Edit: Have just been reading about the 'YORP' effect, as regards the shaping of asteroids over time - I'm surprised this can be inferred for Steins' shape bearing in mind the resolution of available imagery during the Rosetta flyby though....

quoting from the abstract for "E-Type Asteroid (2867) Steins as Imaged by OSIRIS on Board Rosetta" (the full article is beyond the paywall, I have a pdf of it somewhere)

QUOTE
Steins is not solid rock but a rubble pile and has a conical appearance that is probably the result of reshaping due to Yarkovsky-O’Keefe-Radzievskii-Paddack (YORP) spin-up. The OSIRIS images constitute direct evidence for the YORP effect on a main-belt asteroid.

That should be regarded as an opinion, not an established fact. It may be true but the images only suggest it, they don't prove it.

According to the counter at http://www.hayabusa2.jaxa.jp/ , less than a meter per second (walking speed!) for the final 200 km. Looks like another manouevre was completed.

Yes, TCM05:
QUOTE
Our 5th Trajectory Control Manoeuvre (TMC05) for optical navigation was made on June 18, 2018 from ~11:00-12:10 JST. Thrusters gave a velocity change of about 8cm/s (-x), 1cm/s (+y) & 61 cm/s (+z). Hayabusa2 was ~220km from Ryugu and the relative velocity after TCM05 was ~0.7m/s.

Raw tracjectory data updated:

Is another image set expected to be released soon? At less than 200 KM the rotational movie would be quite detailed.

A chart in the Jun 14th press release seems to indicate June 20th for a 110 pixel image. Then June 25th for a 400 pixel image.

After examining source code of JAXA page, I found this raw data file about Hayabusa position:
http://www.hayabusa2.jaxa.jp/hy2sc2/data/hy2_trj.txt

I don't know if "data before today" are real recorded data, or if all of these data are just simulated...

Also found these data for Ryugu, in case anyone is interested:
HY2TRJ.Storage.Ryugu = new Orb.Kepler({
"gm": 2.9591220828559093*Math.pow(10,-4),
"argument_of_periapsis":211.4366,
"eccentricity":0.1902973,
"epoch":2458200.5,
"inclination":5.88397,
"longitude_of_ascending_node":251.58914,
"mean_anomaly":305.97003,
"semi_major_axis":1.1895874

It would be interesting to check if both data groups will be updated in next days.


File updated on june 18th (but same link); orbital parameters still the same.

I didn't interpret it as a plan for new images releases, but just as an overview of resolution evolution.

But at least the press release provides a schedule for next maneuvers (p.27):
20/6: TCM06
22/6: TCM07
24/6: TCM08
26/6: TCM09
27/6: Arrival maneuvre

There is also aschedule for next press releases:
27/6 (arrival at 20 km)
19/7 (5 km)
2/8 (1 km)
23/8

Boom, there we have it! I see some equatorial craters as well as polar craters.
Rotational bulge is very distinctive and equatorial ridge seems to be quite pronounced as well.

Axis of rotation is almost perpendicular to ecliptic plane, but rotation is retrograde.
Advantage is, that we'll gonna see whole Ryugu's surface, althogh landing spots may be limited to equator only.. (according to press release in japanese)

"C" and "D" should allow creating a 3d anaglyph.

There is a substantial amount of informative comments in Japanese from project members and I will translate
these and put them on within the next 20 minutes.

My translations will be based on the URL which carries comments in Japanese and the text right here here is
the comments before the first set of photos on that web page.

Ryugu seen from a distance of 240km to 330 km

What follows are the photos taken around 15:00 (330km) on 17 June and 06:00(240km) on 18 June using
ONC-T (time stumps are JST).

The following photos are before averaging and corrected only for different distances so that they become about
the same size. The order of photos is not in the order of the time of taking them, but in the order of
self-rotation.

P

More translated comments after the first set of photos will follow.

We now know that an English version is available. Great help as our team in the world cup is to start
any moment now!

Ryugu looks like this fish to me.
