Rough English translation of this entry:
(First Picture) The operation room shortly after the confirmation of mission success. The connection of Usuda and Hayabusa is back on line. The staff is gathering in front of the console to see if the sample accuisition was a success or not. Picture taken by the press at 8:43 AM.
(Second Picture) Kawaguchi project manager looks relieved to see the operation was a success. Now it's all up to him if there will be another sample accuisition attempt or not. The situation of remaining propellant is critical, but we still have bullets and a target marker onboard. Picture taken by the press at 8:45 AM.
(Third Picture) Professor Matokawa, smiling and showing a V sign to the streaming Web cam. It's not "let's do another two attempts", it's a V sign! (picture taken by Mitsunari Kita)
