Description

In 2010, the Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa returned to Earth with samples of Comet 25143, Itokawa.

Hayabusa’s observations revealed that S-type asteroids like Itokawa are the source of the most common kind of meteorite found on Earth: the ordinary chondrite meteorite. Itokawa is probably not solid, but is thought to be a rubble pile held together by gravity.

  • Informative flyer with facts about the comet's discovery and features
  • Clear acrylic riser for desk display
