[PPS03-P02] Reflectance estimation of asteroid Ryugu using MASCOT
Keywords:Hayabusa2, ONC-T, MASCOT
MASCOT comprises four instruments (MASCAM, MicrOmega, MARA, and MASMAG) that are employed for analyzing the soil of Ryugu. The upper side of the MASCOT landeris coated with white paint, and its spectral image was captured by ONC-T after its release from Hayabusa2 to Ryugu. The authors conducted on-ground reflectance measurement of a white plate whose white paint is identical to that of MASCOT. Hence, the primary objective of the proposed study is to estimate the reflectance of Ryugu by comparing MASCOT’s white side’s spectrum captured by ONC-T with the on-ground reflectance measurement of the white plate that has identical paint as MASCOT, and thus evaluate the validity.
