TODAY'S IKAROS (6th,June)
IKAROS stands by with maintaing first development, length=5m or more.
Under this condition, the spin rate is increasing very slowly.
This is anxious for the developer of IKAROS , though is not an amount that becomes a problem.
it is the one about which it is anxious in a small symptom though it is not an amount that actually becomes a problem on because it is very slow.
The cause is not specified yet.
Many reasons are thought.
For instance, it is accelerated the rotation by the sunlight pressure like the pinwheel,
or an influence of the out gas or might be the one more by another factor.
We obsere this phenomenon by using this standby time. (Y)
