The coolest mission you haven’t heard of just hit a major milestone: the Japanese Hayabusa 2 probe has reached its destination, the asteroid Ryugu, and just deployed a pair of landers to its surface. Soon it will touch down itself and bring back a sample of Ryugu back to Earth! Are you kidding me? That’s amazing!

Super nifty! :tu:

I bet that hardly anyone (those who don't subscribe to space news bulletins) even knows that Japan even has a space program.

You think so? I’ve been into any space related subject since I was a kid, but then again some people don’t even believe we walked on the moon.

Stanley Kubrick faked this too.

Wake up, sheeple! The only true path is flat earthism coupled with right wing fundamental biblical literalism. Ignorance isn't bliss! look at how angry we are!

I am eager to see the rest of this unfold, and hope it is successful. The idea of blowing a hole in it and bringing back chunks is fabulous :)

Japan is one hundred years ahead of any country on Earth. Don't believe me? Just go there. Sure beats taking the BART and walking 7kms through homeless people on arrival of San Francisco. 3rd world country America
