Photos from Asteroids

Absolutely amazing what we’re able to do in space these days.  Hayabusa2 is a Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) project to land probes on an asteroid to study their composition in search for clues of how planets form. The probe landed on the asteroid “Ryugu” on 22 September 2018. And it is sending back pictures.

The original photos from the approach and landing are at https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-45598156

Updates today from the surface, https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-45667350 

It’s just awesome. See past amazing acts like, We landed on a comet!
