Ryugu Sample Catalog is Open.

The official catalog for the sample collected from asteroid Ryugu is available from today. The catalog lays out the scientific results from the initial description of the asteroid sample returned by the Hayabusa Project, and is designed to be used by researchers who are considering submitting a proposal for the Announcement of Opportunity (AO) to perform a detailed analysis of the Ryugu sample. The press conference by the Astromaterials Science Research Group (ASRG)/JAXA held today introduced the catalog, the activities of the ASRG and current status of the Hayabusa2 spacecraft.
