Ryugu sample AO

ASRG calls for proposals for Hayabusa2 returned samples! For the first announcement of opportunity, ~50 particles that are individually described in a non-destructive way inside the clean chamber will be available. The typical size of the particles is 1-2 millimeters. The particles have not been exposed to the air after their recovery from the sample container. The available particles are marked in the database, which will be launched in January. All proposals will be subjected to peer review, and allocated samples to successful proposers will be available for a period of one year.
