In late 2020, a brave spaceship called Hayabusa2 came back to Earth after a six-year trip and landed in the Australian outback.
When scientists from the Japanese space agency JAXA opened it,
Hayabusa2 was able to pick up a handful of dirt from the surface of a moving asteroid
Scientists are now starting to talk about the first results of their study of this unusual sample
"We had only a handful of meteorites to investigate, all of which were in museums
Scientists from Chicago who were part of an international team of scientists led by Japan looked at the pieces.
They are witnesses from parts of the solar system we haven't explored yet."
Scientists are especially happy because these particles would have never made it to Earth if there hadn't been a spacecraft to protect them.
