Asteroid sample-return missions are also scheduled for later in this decade (OSIRIS-REx, Hayabusa-2). Compositional studies of meteorites indicate that they originated from at least many tens...

.... There is a need for a new generation of space missions to minor bodies in the solar system. The JAXA mission Hayabusa2 to asteroid Ryugu and the NASA OSIRIS-REx mission to asteroid Bennu are already in flight. Both plan to visit a primitive asteroid and return samples to Earth, which will be an invaluable...

The two are not always easy to distinguish from one another, but often appear as distinct groups in photometric color plots (i.e. plots of U-B vs. B-V, where U, B, and V are the brightnesses in different filters). Until the discovery and impact of 2008 TC 3 , F-type asteroids were...
