Formatted Abstract/Summary
Radiometric imaging has been successfully performed on the Hayabusa spacecraft as it entered the atmosphere. A relatively simple spectrograph was designed and operated to record spectra from the hot flow and radiating surface. Automated control ensured that the capsule was tracked throughout its re-entry. The system was calibrated to allow identification of radiating species in the flow and also to make comparisons with black body curves. A temperature of around 3,200 K was measured in this analysis. Work is continuing in an attempt to make a comparison between the absolute level of the spectral radiance determined from the analysis and that given off by a black body. Further work is also underway to investigate the spectral properties of the emission lines and to process the many other images that were obtained.
