[1]Hayabusa goes from strength to strength! The [2]Yomiuri newspaper reports that the second of the sample return canisters contains hundreds of grains, thought to be from Itokakwa. The grains range in size from a tenth to a hundredth of a millimeter.Apparently they turned the container upside down and shocked it (I think that means tapped it) and the things just fell out! Thanks to [3]Pandaneko over on for tipping us non-japenese speakers off.
