Guest Video: Hayabusa Touches Down

Here’s an extra Solar System Saturday video. I didn’t know they’d released a video of the craft’s touchdown! (Original blog post with updates; JAXA mission news in English.)

In case you haven’t been following this Japanese space mission, the touchdown happened recently on Asteroid Ryugu, millions of miles from Earth; the craft is going to eventually return that asteroid material to Earth!
