The movie they provide is amazing. I suggest you take it at different speeds to enjoy the effects. There is almost No Dust. It is absolute Rock. An Asteroid. I can't wait for the scoops safe return. Cheers to the Japan Space program. Well done.

A copper projectile of density 8.9g/cm3 fired at an asteroid with a density of 1.1g/cm3 (essentially pumice) should have gone through it like a hot knife through butter. However, it clearly hit solid rock.
Eventually enough evidence will be gathered over these missions that will finally lead them to realise gravitational force has nothing to do with mass/density. I suspect some realise this already but to admit it would be career suicide.
