Japan's Hayabusa-2 space probe brings rare asteroid samples to Earth - DW News.

A Japanese space capsule carrying rare asteroid material has landed back on earth after a six-year journey covering more than five billion kilometers. Japanese space agency staff applauded as the capsule detached from the probe Hayabusa-2 and began its final approach to earth. The capsule landed at a remote base in Australia. The probe collected rock and soil samples billions of years old from the distant asteroid Ryugo. Scientists hope the material will provide clues about the origins of the universe and life itself.
