Japanese landing on an Asteroid
This friday a japanese spacecraft will have a Daring encounter with asteroid:
A Japanese spacecraft is about to make a close encounter with an asteroid in a mission to recover space dust.
The Hayabusa probe is stationed over a giant asteroid some 300 million km from Earth.
On Friday it will descend to the surface of the 600-metre-long space rock to carry out observations and release a tiny robotic probe.
Two further descents are planned later this month to collect samples for return to Earth next year.
