抄録

The Hayabusa spacecraft launched in 2003 is now completing its round trip to a near Earth asteroid Itokawa, to which it accessed in 2005. Hayabusa suffered from a fuel leak and eruption incidents after its successful descent, touch-down and lift-off at the end of November in 2005. Hayabusa lost two reaction wheels among three aboard and the chemical propulsion. The only means left for Hayabusa are the ion engines and xenon gas reserved for them as well as a single reaction wheel. Hayabusa project team devised the use of xenon gas for cold gas propulsion, and also developed the new attitude control strategy taking the advantage of solar radiation pressure. The spacecraft started the delta-V maneuver using the ion engines from 2007 and will continue it by next February. It is scheduled for Hayabusa to reenter into the atmosphere and land in middle of Australia in June of 2010.
