Our coordinated analyses will focus on the following objectives:
• Determine the mineralogy of the allocated grains, and characterize their chemical and isotopic compositions and microstructures.
• Determine the extent and nature of space weathering effects preserved in the samples and compare and contrast the effects to those recorded in lunar soil samples and gas-rich meteorites.
• Investigate asteroid regolith processing through studies of the shock and thermal history of Hayabusa grains.
• Perform a systematic and coordinated search for trace organics and measure their isotopic compositions.
