Japanese Collects First Sample of Asteroid

A Japanese space probe has collected a sample of dust from an asteroid and brought it to Earth. This is the first time samples from another celestial body than the Moon has been brought to Earth by our civilisation, and it was Japanese who did it. There is no question about the Japanese being a great people, this only goes to prove that once more. I do not think it is strange that the Japanese are great, considering that Japan is the home country of the Shiba Inu. If humans have great dogs, this must make it easier becoming great humans as well.

It will be interesting to see what scientific news can come from this collected asteroid dust. I have small hopes for great discoveries. The greatest achievement was collecting the dust. This was a scientific feat in its own right.
