How were they formed? : Submicrometer craters in samples returned from the asteroid Itokawa

It is previously reported that precious few Itokawa particles show submicrometer craters on their surface. An international research team led by Dr. Dennis Harries (Friedrich Schiller University Jena) has investigated these craters in details using scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy.

Expedition of Treasures in Space Science

Akira Miura
Assistant prof., Department of Interdisciplinary Space Science

One of the treasures of the ISAS is long-amassed data on space science. Much of them are consolidated in the archive of the space science data, called DARTS, and open to the world. These space science data are well-known to researchers and being put to use by many people. In this column, I would like to talk about something interesting to the general public so that many can become more familiar with the space science data.
