Rock sample from asteroid Ryugu hold clues to solar system evolution

Rock sample from asteroid Ryugu hold clues to solar system evolution In late 2019, Hayabusa2 left Ryugu . Testing will start nearly immediately on the returned material. The Japanese Hayabusa-2 spacecraft lands on an asteroid to collect samples. Some theories posit that an asteroid first delivered amino acids to our planet. "When I was in college in Japan in the 1990s, my college adviser told me about how the only samples we had were from the Apollo missions... [Full Article...]

Chinese spacecraft docked in lunar orbit to send satellite samples to Earth

Chinese spacecraft docked in lunar orbit to send satellite samples to Earth Chang'e 5's lander module, which remained on the moon, is equipped to both scoop samples from the surface and drill 2 metres (more than 6 feet) to retrieve materials that could provide clues to the history of the moon, Earth other planets and space features.

As for more personal presents for the four Americans, two Russians and one Japanese on board, "I don't like to get out in front of Santa Claus". With the new version operatio... [Full Article...]

China built super powerful quantum computer, 100 trillion times faster than supercomputer

China built super powerful quantum computer, 100 trillion times faster than supercomputer That's exponentially faster than existing supercomputers. The research was published on Science magazine online. Quantum supremacy is described by the ability of a quantum machine to do a workload, which seems unfeasible for a conventional computer.

'Mini-moon' asteroid 2020 SW is 1960s rocket shard

'Mini-moon' asteroid 2020 SW is 1960s rocket shard On Wednesday, the government space agency said the object known as "2020 SO" is not an asteroid , but rather a part of a Centaur rocket booster from the Surveyor 2 spacecraft, which launched toward the moon in 1966. "Because of the extreme speed at which Earth-orbiting Centaur boosters travel across the sky, we knew it would be extremely hard to lock on with the IRTF [Infrared Telescope Facility...

Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa2 approaches Earth to drop samples from asteroid Ryugu

Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa2 approaches Earth to drop samples from asteroid Ryugu It was a lovely fireball, and I was so impressed", said JAXA's Hayabusa2 project manager Yuichi Tsuda as he celebrated the successful capsule return and safe landing from a command center in Sagamihara, near Tokyo. They are particularly interested in analysing organic materials in the samples. Asteroids resemble extras from the development of our solar system, protecting data about the origins...
