Scope

  Two spacecrafts, Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx are almost reaching their target asteroids, Ryugu and Bennu, respectively. Their remote-sensing observations will begin in this summer to let us surprise a lot by showing new insights of the C-type asteroids. Thus, the main topics for this time are quick-looks of remote-sensing results by Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx, and planetary materials sciences related to the asteroids.

   In order to synchronize with current results of planetary material sciences, this symposium is jointed with “the 41th Symposium on Antarctic Meteorites”, which is detailed in the following URL.
