[b]Hayabusa arrives at target asteroid Itokaw[/b]
The asteroid exploration probe, "Hayabusa", which has been traveling to its target, the Itokawa, arrived some 20km away from the asteroid at 10:00 a.m. on September 12 (Japan Standard Time), and is now stationary at the site.
Images acquired by the Hayabusa show the rough and rocky surface of the Itokawa. The Hayabusa will carry out a scientific probe including sample collections and topological investigations over about two months.
