The statement "The explosion will form a copper penetrator hitting the asteroid with a velocity of 2 km/s" is unclear. Perhaps something like "The copper penetrator's velocity of 2 km/s will create an explosion due to the kinetic energy of its impact."? (talk) 20:16, 8 December 2014 (UTC)daddyodel

2014 XX39[edit]

Is it worth mentioning in the article that Hayabusa 2 was discovered as near-Earth asteroid 2014 XX39?

Clarification question. The Hayabusa 2 probe was misidentified as a near-miss asteroid as it left Earth orbit, and was later identified as being the space probe? Maybe that would be more appropriate for a page on detecting Near Earth Objects rather than cluttering up information about the Hayabusa 2 mission.

Actually, the 1999 JU3 asteroid for the Hayabusa 2 mission and the Itokawa (1998 SF36) asteroid for the original Hayabusa mission are both considered Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs).
So maybe there would be an interest on the Hayabusa 2 page for a comment about efforts to detect Near Earth Asteroids (NEAs) in general, and PHAs in particular, with a link to a page with more detail about the current state of the art.

I'm not totally sold on the notability of this info- seems kind of like trivia, with little impact to the mission. But if there's a verifiable source per WP:V (i.e. not just a posting on a forum), perhaps there's a way to include the info. I would stick to how this relates to Hayabusa 2, however. A general comment about detecting NEAs/PHAs belongs in a different article. Cheers! Skyraider1 (talk) 01:49, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
