The MUSES-C spacecraft, under the development by the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS) of Japan for the asteroid sample-return mission, will make dynamic touch-down with the target asteroid when it acquires samples. The touch-down behavior is studied with simulations based on the multi-body dynamics with a friction model. Hardware experiments are carried out to verify the simulation model and evaluate the performance of the contact detector.
