In a recent development, the Japanese space probe is returning to Earth after collecting samples from an asteroid. The space agency of Japan confirmed the news on Monday. The asteroid was around 255 million km away from the planet Earth. The probe’s mission was to collect sub-surface samples from the asteroid. Scientists are expecting that the samples would reveal more information about the origin of life. 

The asteroid called Ryugu is expected to form at the beginning of the solar system. As a result, Ryugu might have organic matter in its subsurface that could be a potential contributor to life on Earth, scientists explained before. 

The whole world is eagerly looking forward to the return trip of the space probe. If the mission is becoming successful, then it will mark the first instance in the history of the human race when subsurface samples from an asteroid brought back to Earth, a spokeswoman from JAXA, explained. 

More About The Mission

The space probe called Hayabusa 2 was not carrying any human. It started its return journey from last week but still able to send back the images of the asteroid to Earth. The ongoing observation will stop from the early hours of Tuesday when the probe would start its engine for the return journey, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency confirmed. The spokeswoman from JAXA also pays her farewell to the asteroid called Ryugu. 

Hayabusa 2 is named after a particular type of Falcon. The space probe is anticipated to reach Earth by the end of 2020. Currently, the examination is preparing for a years-long journey. The probe will deliver the capsule containing the subsurface particles without landing on the surface. The probe will fly again into space for further potential exploration after completing the project. 

The total cost of the mission is said to be around 29 billion yen (266 million USD).
