    27 Juin 2018

    The Japanese Hayabusa2 space probe has reached the end of its 3.2-billion-kilometre journey with its passenger, the French-German MASCOT (Mobile Asteroid Surface Scout) lander. Launched in 2014, Hayabusa2 has completed three orbits of the Sun in four years, after which it began a few weeks ago its very slow approach to its final destination. Since today, Hayabusa2 is now escorting Ryugu at a close distance of some 20 kilometres, collecting images and data from this celestial object that spins on itself in a little more than seven and a half hours. MASCOT is scheduled to land on the asteroid in early October.
