Japan’s asteriod mission returns Sunday

I vividly recall hearing Sputnik’s bleeps as it orbited the Earth over my father’s shortwave radio. Watching the drama of America’s first flights into outer space, NASA’s moon flights and the Space Shuttle were science fiction becoming reality.

The return of Japan’s asteroid lander, scheduled to land Sunday in Australia is eagerly awaited by scientist around the world, and space exploration fans like me.

UPDATE

See a NASA video of the reentry light show here.

In a spectacular display across the night sky of Australia, Japan’s Hayabusa asteroid lander returned to Earth after a four-billion mile journey.

    Well I do not usually comment on blogs but I stumbled on yours whilst I was doing some job researching in Bing today so i figured I might drop a quick comment. I have to admit that I have gotten somewhat sidetracked going through and looking at a few of your articles… I should probably be working. Terrific stuff here and I’ll be back again in the future to see more. Cheers!

    Hey there! I came upon this blog while I was researching a few health and fitness related terms in Bing earlier today. After I wound up here I stuck around a bit to go through a number of articles… decent stuff. I will make sure to come back down the road some time and get caught up.
