First Asteroid Sample From Japanese Space Probe Hayabusa - Sunday Morning

It appears as if the whole universe has subscribed to the JAXA twitterfeed for the Japanese space probe Hayabusa which took a chunk of the asteroid Itokawa, but it is just actually an error in the translation from the way Google Translate works.   It is currently 150k kilometers out still but is coming in fast.  If you want to see it as it happens don’t forget to follow Emily on Twitter to get live updates in English,
