When the module for the sample return launches to bring back the sample it will leave a canister behind with the names of the members of the Planetary Society on it. This will be one of the 5 places where my name has been placed in an off Earth setting. Three are on Mars, and one is on a missed Mars attempt that is orbiting the sun outside the orbit of Mars. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font size="2">John Wayne Smith, CEO</font></p><p><font size="2">1000 Planets, Inc</font></p><p><font size="2">Http://www.1000Planets.com</font></p><p><font size="2">203 W.Magnolia St.</font></p><p><font size="2">Leesbutg Florida 34748</font></p><p><font size="2">Ph: 352 787 5550</font></p><p><font size="2">email jwsmith42000@aol.com</font></p> </div>

Would that be the Nozomi? It's a shame they couldn't nudge it into orbit.

"The re-entry capsule will be detached from the main spacecraft at a distance of about 300,000 to 400,000 km from the Earth, and the capsule will coast on a ballistic trajectory, re-entering the Earth's atmosphere in June 2007. The capsule will experience peak decellerations of about 25 G and heating rates approximately 30 times those experienced by the Apollo spacecraft."<br /><br />Ouch! I wonder what the re-entry velocity is.
