Hayabusa is bringing with it a hunk of the asteroid Itokawa.Hayabusa is expected to land in an unpopulated area of Australia at approximately midnight locally, or 7 am PDT, on Sunday, June 13. Some 30 NASA astronomers will be flying onboard a specially equipped DC-8 with instruments that can monitor Hayabusa’s reentry.
