What if Australia did not give permission for it to land? Convenient to land at Woomera?

I will see this on Sunday night. My elevation is 444m, My view is perfect. Pray for no cloud... pray for no cloud...

Try to photograph

No flight path I can find, I've found some other information. There will be footage as a instrument-packed DC-8 jet flying near the recovery zone with a camera tally of around 36 should get a few pictures. Hayabusa Re-entry, Airborne Observing Campagain

Hayabusa Hits the Homestretch

The capsule should create an artificial fireball beginning at an altitude of about 120 miles (200 km) and hit a peak brightness of magnitude -6.7 (several times brighter than Venus) before deploying its parachute.

For the past year, meteor specialist Peter Jenniskens (SETI Institute) has been organizing an international team to observe the capsule's arrival from a instrument-packed DC-8 jet flying near the recovery zone. Jenniskens mounted a similar effort for the return of the Stardust sample capsule in January 2006....

Barring an 11th-hour setback, in mid-June a small, 38-pound (17-kg) descent capsule will separate from the main spacecraft and slam into the atmosphere over south-central Australia. The larger craft will then maneuver to avoid Earth. Streaking through the darkness at 7.6 miles (12.2 km) per second, the capsule should parachute to the ground somewhere along a target zone, measuring 60 by 10 miles (100 by 15 km), in the remote Woomera Test Range.

What happens with the spacecraft after saperation? Will it stay in orbit as space junk or will it burn in the atmosphere? And if that happens where will it crash? And about the virus thing, there are miljoens/ biljoens virusses from space here on earth. Where all thanks or life's from that. So no worry's.

Hi ni91ck, " Where all thanks or life's from that" Yes, Cometary Panspermia OR Directed Panspermia I believe too


Hayabusa's Sample Recovery Capsule will be released and The larger craft(Hayabusa) will then maneuver to avoid Earth.
Hayabusa is banged up bad three years late and was lucky to get this far.

The Capsule many not have ANY SAMPLES on-board either

Hayabusa Hits Paydirt

The mission's most puzzling events occurred on November 20th[2005], during the first sampling attempt. According to an analysis by JASA engineers, Hayabusa descended as planned to Itokawa's surface, bouncing twice before coming to a stop. It remained there for 30 minutes — yet did not fire a 5-gram tantalum pellet into the asteroid as planned. Apparently a landing sensor detected an obstacle in the minutes leading up to touchdown and disabled the firing mechanism as a precaution.

Anyone know if this would be visible from Brisbane? I'd love to see.

Yes I would like to know too from a Sydney vantage point. I'm not going up the Blue Mountains to see a flash


Hopefully some one may help here.
The Sample Recovery Capsule is coming in at a 11° and will land over a target zone, measuring 100 by 15 km (60 by 10 miles), an artificial fireball beginning at an altitude of about 200 km (120 miles) will appear.

I'll have a look a Google Earth later(got to do some work) and see if I can work it out. I'll look at the middle of the landing zone go out N/W @11° up to 200km and see what I see

Holy moses, have fun working all that out. I'm not the sharpest knife in the draw but would help if I could.

Are there any expectations as to what time the it'd take place? I could imagine it'd be visible, considering that spiral thing was seen almost all over Australia.

All this stuff is way outta my league, best leave it to guys like you hah.

Well I've tried, I thought I could go N/W 260°-340° @11°- ALT, up to 200km and see what I see but I couldn't find or Google hasn't got this tool
first time I've tried this too. Anyway a picture below may lol I mean may give you any idea WishForWings, Main thing is "a peak brightness of magnitude -6.7 (several times brighter than Venus) before deploying its parachute" if you see Venus at what, about 70° like us all there's a start




I found this tracking site when the X-37B test was active
Heavens Above.com their also tracking Bob Bigalow's sat's:
Satellites

10 day predictions for: ISS | X-37B | Genesis-1 / 2 | Envisat | HST

Daily predictions for all satellites brighter than magnitude:

This picture is of the X-37B about two weeks ago when I was tracking the (Secret)X-37B test.


I have emailed(2hrs ago (gem)) Heavens Above.com to inform them of this event although I'm sure they are aware and asked them if they Will Track Hayabusa to Australia I left "No response required" because of the amount of requests at Heavens Above so now I'll wait and see if Hayabusa comes up on site Lets Hope
. This is the second event of this kind I think they'll be interested.
Heavens Above.com Will have to register all good.

Hmm doesn't sound like good news for me, hell I won't even know where to look in the sky. I think I may invest in some beer and pump up ye olde stereo and have a good old fashioned stake out. Knowing my luck the second I go to the toilet I'd miss it.

Thank's Zelong for all your researching efforts and patience for putting up with my idiotic questions. My lack of space knowledge is one more thing to make me regret quitting science in year 10

Explanation: Seems Australia is pulling out all the stops OR more accuratelly, is putting the stops in place!

Personal Disclosure: Thanks to all members who have contributed to this thread. I don't hold much faith in it being as spectacular as the recent UFO/Falcon9 OR it even containing any samples, but I am hoping to be wrong and we'll all know one way or another in less than 1wk.


P.S. I note the coincidence of the Falcon9 and the Hayabusa both referring to my namesake! :shk:

Its back ,Hayabusa returned to earth this morning,did anyone see its re-entry?Pictures were on MSM ,looked like it was breaking up a bit.The Japanese were trying to land it on a whale for scientific research but only managed to scare some stunned roos.

Now thats some funny stuff!! I gotta admit if they did land it on a whale I might change my thoughts on the whaling issue. Kidding of course. Now lets see what it brought back with it.

Wow, what a beautiful reentry...



...'course, you won't hear about that last bit.

Here's a vid shot from the NASA DC-8 that was monitoring the reentry:

Put the hood away mate. A space endeavour no matter which country from is a worldwide project. Whatever troubles we all got down here with each other have no room for up there too.

Here's a related article on the return of the capsule



www.tgdaily.com

Japan's Hayabusa mission, the first to collect samples from an asteroid, made a successful return to earth last night in the Australian outback.

After a seven-year, four billion-mile journey, Hayabusa released a capsule containing samples from the Itokawa asteroid, while the spacecraft itself burned up in the atmosphere.

Today, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) confirmed that it has retrieved the capsule and that it appears to be intact. It hasn't yet found the heat shield.
