This movie was taken on February 22, 2019(JST）when Hayabusa2 first touched down on asteroid Ryugu to collect a sample from the surface. It was captured using the onboard small monitor camera(CAM-H). The video playback speed is five times faster than actual time.
The small monitor camera that captured this powerful video was producted and installed by donations from the public. Thanks to this camera, we were able to photograph the situation during touchdown. Thank you all for your contributions!
