Japan’s Hayabusa2 spacecraft efficiently touched down on asteroid 162173 Ryugu for a second time final night time (July 10th), and transmitted unimaginable pictures again to JAXA. They present totally different views as captured by two cameras – predominant navigation digicam and a publicly funded digicam pointed previous the sampling mechanism – onboard the spacecraft. The previous offers views of Ryugu’s floor at landing, whereas the latter reveals the close by rock it collected samples from. “The landing is profitable,” stated JAXA spokesman Takayuki Tomobe Learn extra for a video, extra footage and knowledge.
