Hayabusa 2 rovers send new images from Ryugu surface

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-45667350

Japan's space agency (Jaxa) has released new images from the robot rovers it has deployed to the surface of an asteroid.

The photos reveal new details of the surface of the space rock, which is known as Ryugu.

On 21 September, the rovers were released on to the surface by the "mothership", Hayabusa 2.

Hayabusa 2 reached Ryugu in June after a three-and-a-half-year journey.

One of the principal concerns for deployment was Ryugu's rougher-than-expected surface, which is carpeted with boulders and has very few smooth patches.

The 1kg rovers are equipped with wide-angle and stereo cameras to send back pictures. Spine-like projections from the edges of the hoppers are sensors that will measure surface temperatures on the asteroid.

They can hop and float around thanks to motor-powered internal rotors, which propel the robots across the asteroid.

'Monster Black Hole: The First Image' Premieres Tonight on Science Channel

I watched this on BBC4 last night & it was an interesting documentary marking what they are calling a major milestone in it's field. While they're not actually taking a picture of the Black hole itself, rather it's effect on the matter around it it's still been quite the project requiring lots of people & 8 of the Worlds most powerful telescope arrays to simultaneously focus on that area of space over a period of 5 nights to get all the data needed to create an image of it.
