The probe Hayabusa 2 transferred the first pictures from an asteroid


The Hayabusa 2 ship is the first in the history, successfully collected soil samples from an asteroid. The Hayabusa 2 spaceship successfully landed on a far asteroid of Ryugu and executed a mission for collecting samples of "pure" primary matter which as scientists hope, will give hints to origin of the solar system. He also transferred the first pictures from an asteroid surface. Writes New Scientist about it. In April Hayabusa 2 artificially created a crater for landing, having shot at an asteroid surface a copper bullet. The mission consisted in landing in a crater and to collect samples which, according to scientists, contain the valuable data. The Hayabusa 2 ship is the first, successfully collected soil samples from an asteroid, and its achievement outstripped the similar mission planned by NASA on other asteroid. "It was success, great success. We achieved success in all planned procedures", - noted Takasi Cubothat, the participant of the Hayabusa 2 project in JAXA. Earlier it was reported that scientists are afraid of falling of an asteroid to Benn to Earth during the period between 2169 and 2199. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
