...starting a new thread for Hayabusa's sampling feedback and the return voyage.

After its nail-biting success in November, will there be enough fuel for the Falcon to make it home?

Well, it did everything NEAR did on only about 2/3 of the money, which is not to be sneezed at -- especially since it gave us nice comparative data on another asteroid. Unfortunately, it now looks as though everything it tried to do BEYOND what NEAR did will be a washout.

Bruce:

o It used an ion engine operationally in deep space
o Made use of sophisticated auto-nav and rendezvous systems
o Demonstrated close-in maneuvers in multiple ways

And performed a NEAR-like mission, too!

All in all, a helluva mission!
