ISWI Newsletter - Vol.4 No.6
Dear ISWI Participant:
16 January 2012
This news is not directly related to space weather but it is relevant
to the exploration of space. The news is that a motion picture
has been made about "Hayabusa" (JAXA, May 9, 2003 to June 13, 2010) -- this is the first time in human history
that a satellite was launched from Earth, travelled to an asteroid,
grabbed a piece of that asteroid, and returned to Earth with that sample.
The satellite made a dramatic return to Earth on 13 June 2010.
Details on this mission can be found here:
Attached is a photo of a promotional poster put out by the producer
of this new film. I spotted it in the halls of our university.
Faithfully and cordially yours,|
