Japan woke up early Monday to a fireball streaking across its skies. Astronomers say space debris or piece of an asteroid are the likely cause
Japanese scientists have praised "the world’s first rover to land on the surface of an asteroid." The Hayabusa2 is expected to land a German-made lander carrying a larger rover in October.
In collaboration with NASA, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has announced plans for the construction of the first human colony on the moon, a little more than a decade in the future. Julian Ryall reports.
After three and a half years of flight, the Hayabusa2 probe will reach the asteroid Ryugu. Its task: Collect asteroid dust. The German landing device MASCOT is also on board. It's due to land on Ryugu in October.
