arXiv today has two papers on Hayabusa re-entry:
Photographic Observations of the Hayabusa Re-entry and Near-Ultraviolet and Visible Spectroscopy of HAYABUSA Spacecraft Re-entry

I have downloaded the new Hayabusa images with geometry backplanes (here: the ddr_gaskell.tar at http://sbn.psi.edu/pds/resource/amicageom.html), and NASAview was unable to read the NxNx 16bands images. After some efforts, I succeeded to read them, it was such a pain.
I had to redevelop my own script to read those strange 32 bits. I had never seen that before: the bytes are swaped, but the bits in each byte must be read normally.

Well, finally those data are wonderful. smile.gif

Scanning Electron Microscope analysis of samples brought back by Hayabusa reveal a lot of "space weathering".

What an impressive paper! To have such important results come out of a mission with such hardship is fantastic. My congratulations to the Hayabusa team--the engineers who brought the craft home and the scientist who never lost hope that they would have something to study.
