No word if Lipovitan will sponsor coverage.


In the unofficial webcast presented by CASTY, I saw Dr. Terazono (known as the Hayabusa Lipovitan-D blogger) was drinking a bottle of Lipovitan-D biggrin.gif

Since Lipovitan-D sensation at UMSF.com in Hayabusa touchdown, this drink unofficially emblematizes Japanese space missions. Here I show a capture from the CASTY unofficial webcast in the launch of SOLAR-B/Hinode last year; you can see Dr. Terazono was drinking it tongue.gif

Thanks Nop for good detail.

I see that Kaguya will travel slower to Moon than Apollo. This is for the cheapest travel to Moon without has to much acceleration and breaking. Anyway, the time will fly fast. wink.gif

Kaguya will take around 19 days to reach the Moon, 37 days till it settles into its final, 100 km high orbit.

I think we are going to a wrong route if we compare Apollo and Kaguya. Yet, managers plan to take "Earthrise photos" and these pictures will be as spectacular as the "Earthrise photo" taken by Apollo 8 astronauts.

I expect the images (and HDTV movies) of such scenes to be even more spectacular than what was possible in the late 1960s. Of course, this all depends on how compressed, well exposed etc. the imagery will be. I'm looking forward to that.

According to releases (in Japanese, sorry),
http://www.jaxa.jp/countdown/f13/topics/pd..._0030_vc1_j.pdf
http://www.jaxa.jp/countdown/f13/topics/pd..._0227_va1_j.pdf
injection error correction maneuver (delta-Vc1) was successfully executed.
Apogee 232,782km
Perigee 956km
Period 4d23h37m

Next maneuver (Delta-Va1) was scheduled on 8:00am Sept 16 (JST).
We've heard no news about it yet, but no news must be a good news. I hope her success smile.gif

Where is Kaguya? "It is in the position of present KAGUYA."

Makes you appreciate JPL's Solar System Simulator a lot more. laugh.gif

nop, do you know if Kaguya will acquire approach imagery as it nears the Moon? Would be interesting to see how image products will looks from this spacecraft with science target, not hardware (though those images are pretty cool, don't get me wrong).

Sorry, volcanopele, I have no information about it. But I'm sure that JAXA will release some moon images on the way, as past spacecrafts (Hiten, Nozomi and Hayabusa) have provided us a lot of images when approaching the moon, the earth and the asteroid.
Stay tuned for further updates.


FYI, the maneuver Delta-Va1 was successfully executed yesterday and now Kaguya is fine.

Do we have any information about end of mission scenarios? At least the main spacecraft, and eventually the subsatellites, should impact as the orbits evolve and are not maintained. The subsatellites are probably not controllable to target an impact as SMART-1 was targeted, but the main spacecraft could be controlled.

I only live for points on a map.
