Starting to open HAYABUSA sample container
A capsule of the Asteroid Explorer "HAYABUSA," which returned to Earth on June 13, was brought to the curation facility at the Sagamihara Campus to be inspected and disassembled.
From the 24th, we finally started to open the sample container in the capsule. It will take one week to complete the opening of the container.
