Hayabusa2’s second touchdown on asteroid Ryugu
JAXA’s Asteroid Explorer “Hayabusa2” performed a second touchdown to collect a sample from asteroid Ryugu on 11 July 2019. The video was created from images captured with Hayabusa2’s CAM-H at intervals between 0.5s and 5s and played back at 10x speed.
The first image was taken at an altitude of about 8.5m and the last is from an altitude of about 150m.
