We opened the special site “Analysis Reveals the Origin of Life and the Solar System!”.
The site introduces the meaning of initial analysis of samples of asteroid Ryugu and special interviews of scientists and analysis engineers involved in the Hayabusa2 project to get more people interested in Science.

HORIBA TECHNO SERVICE Co., Ltd. is participating in a project as a member of the chemical analysis team for the initial analysis of samples, including sand and gravel, that the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's (JAXA's) Asteroid Explorer Hayabusa2 has collected from the asteroid Ryugu.
It is believed that Ryugu has an asteroid carrying information from the early stages of the formation of the Solar System, and also contains a plethora of organic substances and water. The analysis of the samples collected from Ryugu is expected to shed light on the origin and evolution of the solar system and life.
