Hi, my name is "delta-V", one of three bloggers in this Hayabusa blog. I am a researcher in engineering and also one of supervisors in the Hayabusa flight operation. We will post hot topics around Hayabusa, JAXA's asteroid sample-return probe launched in 2003 and to be back this summer. Glad to see you! :-)

A special website has been launched toward the upcoming return of Hayabusa to Earth.

We are also offering information via Twitter in both Japanese and English. Follow @Hayabusa_JAXA !
