MUSES-C / Hayabusa xyz?

Post #1by The Singing Badger » 09.03.2004, 02:38

Does anyone know if an xyz and/or model has been made for the Japanese MUSES-C mission? The mission will go into orbit around the NEO asteroid 1998SF36 in 2005, which should be quite exciting... :D

Info on the mission:

When MUSES-C was launched originally, I emailed the team at HORIZONS to see if they'd add it to their spacecraft list. They said that this was an unlikely possibility, so unless JAXA do the ESA thing & start using it on their mission control big screens, I don't think we're going to see a Hayabusa xyz... :(

This little-known mission will be really cool to see results from, and the first time we've got samples back from an object other than the moon!

What about the ship model?
Or the model and orbit of the asteroid Itokawa (1998SF36)?
Anyone?

Modeling an asteroid requires optical or radar observations that show its shape on several sides. I dunno if this has been done.

Creating a trajectory for it is somewhat easier. Please take a look at the Web page http://www.lepp.cornell.edu/~seb/celestia/transforming_ephemeris.html
Contributing an appropriate SSC file can be rewarding in itself.

Someone who has the ssc file from the hayabusa probe :think: ? I ask you please, thank you.
