Hayabusa2 Lands on Ryugu

In trying to understand the origins and evolution of our solar system, the Hayabusa2 embarks on its journey to explore and study the asteroid "Ryugu" for signs or evidences of life with the help of the insights gained from its predecessor, Hayabusa.

Two weeks ago, Hayabusa2 made its landing on the asteroid named after a palace in a Japanese folktale. With shots taken from CAM-H in Hayabusa2, we get to see the touchdown moment of the explorer and what the surface of the asteroid looks like. Will Hayabusa2 unlock the mystery of our solar system's beginnings?
