Physical, Chemical, and Petrological Characteristics of Chondritic Materials and Their Relationships to Small Solar System Bodies [STUB] (2. Chapter.)

Abstract: Chondrite materials with varying abundances of volatile-bearing phases are expected at the destinations for the asteroid sample-return missions Hayabusa2 and OSIRIS-REx. The targets of the missions are 162173 (1999 JU3) Ryugu and 101955 (1999 RQ36) Bennu. Spectroscopic analyses of these asteroids suggest that their surface materials are related to types 1 and 2 carbonaceous chondrites. Some studies suggest that the parent bodies of these chondrites may have also experienced some thermal and/o…
