"Welcome Back, HAYABUSA!" Capsule Exhibition Event

Courtesy of JAXA

"HAYABUSA" landed on the asteroid "Itokawa," located approximately 300 million km away from Earth, and brought back a sample from its surface, the first time this had ever been done. It succeeded in safely bringing home its re-entry capsule in June. In this event, we will exhibit the capsules and parachute of "HAYABUSA" that successfully completed this remarkable mission and will look back on the grand journey that lasted 7 years.

■ Main Exhibits
Instrument module, mounted electronic device, parachute, engineering model
