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.
