Keynote: The first comprehensive analysis of Ryugu: the most primitive solar system material and a cometary origin

The first comprehensive analysis of Ryugu: the most primitive solar system material and a cometary origin

Room/Stage: Hall D
Focus:
The Future and Beyond

Based on the comprehensive data set obtained in this study, we will answer the science goals that were determined as the aims of the Hayabusa2 mission. The aims include understanding the origin and evolution of materials in the asteroid Ryugu and the early solar nebula and constraining the physical properties of planetesimals during the planetary accretion process. Furthermore, the main goal has been set to elucidate the origin of water in the Earth and organic matter as the building block of Llife because the samples returned from Ryugu are expected to be entirely free from contamination from the Earth’s environment.
