The Japanese space Agency has revealed new images from the surface of the asteroid

The Japanese aerospace exploration Agency (JAXA) has published a new portion of data obtained from the asteroid Rovers, MINERVA-II1, successfully carried out the landing on the asteroid Ryugu 21 September in the framework of the mission "Hayabusa-2". On the published picture shows the surface of an asteroid, covered with rather large boulders. In addition, for the first time obtained video from the surface of the asteroid. The animation consists of 15 frames received by the module Rover-1B September 23, 2018 and covers 74 minutes of real time. The camera captured the movement of the Sun, reports the website of the mission.

Based on the received images, both of the Rover moving on the surface of the asteroid jumps are in fully functional condition and able to shoot.

Recall that the interplanetary automatic station "Hayabusa-2", launched into space in 2014, reached the orbit of the asteroid Ryugu June 27. On 21 September, the unit landed on the surface of the object two of the Rover. Both devices are equipped with various scientific instruments for analysis of soil surface Ryuga and move through it using a special hopping mechanisms. In the future, the asteroid will be planted large immobile lander, and a third Rover.

Photo was received on 23 September 2018 unit Rover-1B immediately after the jump

This photo was obtained in the same Rover immediately after landing,

This image was on the surface, the Ryuga was made September 23, 2018 Rover unit-1A

Photo was made with a camera Rover-1A on September 23. It shows the shadow from the antenna module, and a special pin. According to the website of the mission, these pins perform three functions: increase the area of fiction when you jump, to protect solar panels from damage when landing, and also have built-in temperature sensors to directly measure the surface temperature of the Ryugu
