After being collected by Hayabusa-2; a space probe, the Japanese welcomed a very rare substance knows as asteroid dust or an asteroid sample on earth.
It has been told that the content of the capsule released by the probe from space to earth weights approximately 0.1 grams. The contents were sent to earth via a capsule, which landed somewhere around the Australian desert.
According to Chinese officials, the journey of the asteroid sample from space to probe to its capsule took around 6 Years and landed in Woomera and had breached earth’s atmosphere per Japanese time, around 2:30 am, descending down like a ball of fire. Detected by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), we receive a confirmation that the sample has been safely extracted after it’s detachment from Hayabusa-2 on Saturday because of the beacons released by the capsule as it separate itself When the probe which is around the size of a fridge was at a distance of 220,000 km.
The content of the capsule is being investigated upon by the Australians to check for any gaseous emissions after which it’ll be handed over to the Japanese.
Scientists believe that this will help them discover the secret to the origin of space, planets and the Universe.
