  We study the origin and evolution of planets in the solar system including the Earth, satellites and asteroids, by laboratory experiments and planetary exploration. Particularly, we focus on the impact phenomena which are important factor to clarify the origin and the evolution of the solar system, and examined the relationship with the variety of bodies in the solar system.

  Currently, we collaborate with the researchers in ISAS, JAXA, PERC in Chiba Tech., Kouchi Univ., Univ. Occup. Env. Health, Aichi Toho Univ., etc., and develop the devices, SCI (Small Carry-on Impactor) and DCAM3 (Deployable Camera), equipped on Hayabusa-2 explorer.
