The Hayabusa-2 science team has announced that it has found ten additional secondary craters produced from ejecta from the manmade impact the spacecraft created on Ryugu on April 5.
The secondary craters appear to be about a yard across each, while the initial crater is about thirty feet wide with a depth of six to ten feet.
