The first are received in the history of a photo from an asteroid surface


Two Japanese mini-robots started from the probe "Hayabusa-2" have made the successful landing first in the history on an asteroid and have transferred to scientists of the photo and data from his surface. The website of the Japanese agency of space researches (JAXA) reports about it. Mobile research MINERVA-II1 robots, each of which weighs only one kilogram, have separated from "Hayabusy-2" on September 21. They are in good shape, and at least one of them moves on a surface of an asteroid of Ryugu which "Hayabusa-2" has reached in June. The pictures taken by MINERVA-II1 have turned out indistinct because of rotation of robots at the movement and sunlight patches of light. All JAXA has published three pictures. The Hayabusa-2 space probe has been launched on December 3, 2014 by means of the carrier rocket H-2A from the spaceport of Tanegashima located in the south of Japan. The probe will stay near an asteroid within one and a half years. Soil sampling for what "Hayabusa-2" will release the mobile explosive device on a surface will become the following investigation phase of Ryugu. Then also landing of one more lowered research vehicle which investigates an asteroid in more detail is planned. The asteroid 1999 JU3 belongs to group of near-earth and belongs to a spectral class C (dark carbonaceous objects). The body cycle time around the Sun is equal to 474 days, and average orbital speed — to 27 kilometers per second. Ryugu is removed from Earth on 300 million kilometers.
