We investigated the magnitude–phase relation of (162173) 1999 JU3, a target asteroid for the JAXA Hayabusa 2 sample return mission. We initially employed the International Astronomical Union's H–G formalism but found that it fits less well using a single set of parameters. To improve the inadequate fit, we employed two photometric functions: the Shevchenko and Hapke functions. With the Shevchenko function, we found that the magnitude–phase relation exhibits linear behavior in a wide phase angle…

The JAXA Hayabusa2 mission was approved in 2011 with launch planned for late 2014. Arriving at the asteroid (162173) 1999 JU_3 in 2018, it will survey it, land, and obtain surface material, then
INTERSTELLAR MAGNETIC FIELDS OBSERVED BY VOYAGER 1 BEYOND THE HELIOPAUSE
Voyager 1 (V1) was beyond the heliopause between 2013.00 and 2014.41, where it was making in situ observations of the interstellar magnetic field (ISMF). The average azimuthal angle and elevation
Secular light curves of NEAs 2201 Oljato, 3200 Phaethon, 99942 Apophis, 162173 Ryugu, 495848 and 6063 Jason
Using the Secular Light Curve (SLC) formalism (Ferrin, 2010a, PSS, 58, 365-391), we searched for cometary activity of six NEAS: 2201 Oljato. The SLC exhibits significant cometary activity and

Prior to its close encounter with the Kuiper Belt object (KBO) (486958) 2014 MU69 on 2019 January 1, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft observed other KBOs from distances greater than 0.1 au at solar
Hayabusa2 Mission Overview
The Hayabusa2 mission journeys to C-type near-Earth asteroid (162173) Ryugu (1999 JU3) to observe and explore the 900 m-sized object, as well as return samples collected from the surface layer. The
Rate of Δν Determination for Near Earth Asteroids
The best near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) candidates for observation are those with low ∆v as it is these that are best suited for unmanned, manned, scientific, and commercial expeditions. The majority of
Spectroscopic aperture biases in inside-out evolving early-type galaxies from CALIFA
