Hayabusa-2: Japanese probe likely to have 'bombed' an asteroid
By Paul Rincon Science editor, BBC News website


Artwork: Scientists want to retrieve a pristine sample of material from the crater

The Japanese Hayabusa-2 spacecraft is thought to have detonated an explosive charge on the asteroid it is exploring.


The idea was to create an artificial crater on the object known as Ryugu.

If this is successful - and the early indications are positive - the probe will later return to gather samples from the gouged depression.

Was it a surprise attack?
The Democrats had long ago decided to try to impeach Trump, and they decided to do so in December 2016 — because he won. There’s no point pretending otherwise.

The asteroid never saw it coming.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Have they never seen a Japanese monster movie? This is how it starts.

"We exploded a bomb on asteroid Ryugu. We named it that because it looks strangely like a giant egg"

"Hey I heard a terrifying sound coming from the basement. I'll take a candle down there and look around"
Hahahahaha....No seriously. Who is the President?

You head to the basement.
I'll go to the attic.
Everyone else, head for the graveyard.
