Asteroid probe begins return from rendezvous

Anticipation will continue to build until the capsule's lid is opened, offering, they hope, the first peek at asteroid dust.

Japan's Hayabusa is on its way home after its rendezvous with Itokawa.

Wow! The first unmanned space probe to land on an asteroid is set to land in my home country!

What a wonderful space exploration achievement made by the Japanese space agency.

This is sweet! Been waiting for someone to post it.

I will be in the far south east of tasmania out in a fishing boat at that time. Will I be able to see it?

Will have camera at the ready. And isn't its carrier thing supposed to come through and burn up after it?
