You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

    I’m a great fan of your blog and I regret to inform you that the last 2 pictures are fake. Their only source is a twitter of a person with the nick Tobacco_rat and if you look closrly the stones on them look rounder and the pictures are much higher resolution than on genuine Hayabusa 2 pictures.

    Best regards

    Michal: Apparently you are right! I think that is the first time I ever got fooled by fake images. Odd that someone took the time to fake such an up-close dirt picture. Usually, the fakes are more scenic.

    SO they are removed and I added a global view of Ryugu.
