Small particles found in the sample container of the HAYABUSA

Minute particles were confirmed in the sample container of the HAYABUSA, whose unpacking operation was started on June 24 (JST) at the Curation Center at the Sagamihara Campus.

We are still unsure if those particles are something from the ITOKAWA or from the Earth, thus we will further examine them.
