The Japanese Hayabusa2 probe has made Ryugu a primitive asteroid creating an artificial crater that has changed the surface of the rocky space.
On April 5, Hayabusa2 produced a copper projector on an asteroid that had a slab at 4,500 kilometers per hour. The leaking leggings of Ryugu were extracted from the DCAM3 extrascreen camera. However, the images in the camera at that time did not show how Ryugu's surface was affected.
The colic created a bundle of waste, the Japan Aerospace Appliance Agency hiding the paving behind the asteroid, and waited two weeks to set the dust in a low ambient environment.
The Asteroid Sounder fell on April 24, a second 0.4 kilometer speed, to set low-altitude observation, as part of the crater search operation. The Japanese agency, in the end, has the success of the mission and a huge asteroid with over fifty million kilometers of cape.
"The land of asteroids has changed clearly," said Associate Professor Yuichi Tsuda JAXA.
Crater Search Operation
"The Hayabusa 2 mounted telescopic optical navigation camera has been confirmed as an image of observation that the collision device has been created as a crater," announced JAXA in a statement.
JAXA set two images before and after the surface of an asteroid. The first image was taken on March 22 and shows the surface of an asteroid that emerged as a result of the impact of the last image on April 25. The agency also analyzes the size and depth of the artificial crater.
"In the future, the size and specific shape of the artificial crater will be analyzed in the future, but we can see that 20 meters of land has changed. We did not expect much change, even when the intense debate started!" JAXA project Tweeted.
After watching and capturing images, the spacecraft returned to its origins, located 12.4 kilometers above the surface, usually functioning. The landing will collect asteroid asteroids and dust within the artificial crater and return to Earth by 2020.
Hayabusa2 was released on December 3, 2014 and reached C-type asteroid on June 27, 2018. The JAXA scientists are studying the geological historical asteroid.
Hayabusa2 will leave Ryugu at the end of 2019 and return to Earth by 2020.
