  • Japan lands rover on asteroidu

The team behind the expedition faced a nervous two-day wait for the Minerva-II rovers to send back information, but on Sunday, they confirmed the rovers landed.

They will also measure the surface temperature ahead of Hayabusa2's own landing late next month.

This is a picture from MINERVA-II1.

Rover-1B captured this image moments after the lander separated from the Hayabusa2 spacecraft. It's a little blurry - mainly because the rover was spinning when it took the shot.

This JAXA photo of the rovers before launch shows their size.

The rovers are created to hop along the asteroid's surface, taking photographs and gathering data.

Ryugu is a particularly primitive variety, and studying it could shed light on the origin and evolution of our own planet.

One of the rovers snapped a photo of Ryugu after it was from its mother-ship Hayabusa2 while another took photos showing a blurry image of both Hayabusa2 and Ryugu just as it was approaching the asteroid.

Work decimalise from YaPONSKOGO Kosmonova probe "Hayabusa-2", 21 September.

The bouncing robots were put away at the base of the "mothership" Hayabusa2 in a drum-moulded holder.

On Friday, the robots were discharged at 196 feet from the space rock.

Two tiny hopping robots have begun their historic attempt to land on a big asteroid in deep space. Best of all: They've sent back photographs. It returned, about 1,500 grains of rock, from the surface of the asteroid. (10 kg) lander called MASCOT, which was built by the German Aerospace Center in collaboration with the French space agency CNES.

"We are sorry we have kept you waiting!" the space agency, JAXA, . To confirm or refute their theory, the probe in total, to make three landings on an asteroid, after which by 2020, will return to Earth.
