Abstract

In this paper, we summarize the findings and deductions for small asteroid Ryugu from Hayabusa-2 remote sensing as well as from MASCOT radiometer (MARA) data. Observations cover the VIS (broadband) and MIR (broadband) wavelength ranges. For a typical rock on Ryugu's surface, we find a thermal inertia of 295±18 Jm-2K-1s-1/2 (Hamm+ 2020), a microporosity of 50 ± 3% (Grott+ 2020, Hamm+, 2020), and assuming a CM composition and thus an inferred specific heat capacity of cp = 890 Jkg-1K-1 (± 10%, at an average temperature of 277 K), we estimate a thermal conductivity of 0.069 ± 0.012 Jm-1K-1 at ~277 K. These estimates are based on MARA surface brightness temperature measurements of an arguably (Biele+ 2019) dust-free boulder at MASCOT's landing site obtained over a full diurnal cycle and values are consistent with the TIR instrument's global findings (Okada+ 2020). The main source of uncertainty in the thermal inertia estimate is due to the uncertain surface orientation of the boulder top which determines the insolation power. Including a DTM of the observed boulder, embedded in the MASCOT landing site (Scholten+, 2019), into the thermal model could reduce this uncertainty significantly. The very high deduced microporosity lets us reasonably estimate the tensile strength of those abundant "cauliflower rocks" (Jaumann+, 2019), ~200-280 kPa (Grott+, 2019).
