Hayabusa (c)JAXA

You must remember the news about the Asteroid Explorer HAYABUSA, which returned to the Earth on June 13, 2010. Hayabusa had stayed in space for seven years, and after overcomimg various difficulties, it had come back home – to the Earth!
Hayabusa’s reentry capsule is now exhibited at WAKUWAKU Grandy Science Land in Tochigi. (July 21st to 25th only) It’s the first time for the real Hayabusa capsule to be shown in Tochigi prefecture. http://www.tsm.utsunomiya.tochigi.jp/english/index.html

My husband and my elder son visited there to appreciate Hayabusa. They were so excited to see and study about the story of Hayabusa. My elder son held up the reentry capsule replica, which weighed about 2 kg. Also, he got interested in a spacesuit and waited for 10 minutes in a line to take a picture with the spacesuit exhibited there.
Here are what they bought there as a souvenir.

A plastic folder which the picure of Hayabusa is printed on(210 yen), and a miniature Hayabusa (950 yen)
