Success of the Second Touchdown of Asteroid Explorer “Hayabusa 2”


July 11, 2019 (JST)

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) performed a series of 
operations for the second touchdown of Asteroid Explorer "Hayabusa2" 
on the Ryugu asteroid and the collection of its soil samples.

From the data sent from Hayabusa2, it has been confirmed that the 
touchdown sequence, including the discharge of a projectile for 
sampling, was completed successfully. Hayabusa2 is functioning 
normally, and thus the second touchdown ended with success.
