Japanese Space Probe (Hayabusa) Update

This is the probe that landed on an asteroid and hopefully took samples, then returned to earth. The whole process took years to complete and experienced many difficulties along the way.

When last reported, they obtained a video of the probe re-entering our atmosphere like a shooting star. They found it and I have not been able to ascertain if they have actually opened it yet. For pictures of it laying in the desert in Australia go to this site...
