Japanese spacecraft to land in Australia

The Central Australian outback will play a part in space discovery in June when a capsule from a Japanese spacecraft will come to earth at the Woomera rocket range.

The Hayabusa spacecraft made contact with an asteroid five years ago but Japanese officials are uncertain if it managed to collect any material from it.

The Federal Government says Australian authorities are working with their Japanese counterparts on how to successfully land the basketball-sized capsule.
