Japan space probe drops explosive payload and blasts crater in asteroid

Japan’s space agency has said its Hayabusa2 spacecraft released an explosive onto an asteroid to make a crater on its surface and collect underground samples to find possible clues to the origin of the solar system.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), said in Tokyo that Hayabusa2 dropped a “small carry-on impactor” made of copper onto the asteroid and safely evacuated and remained intact. JAXA is analyzing further details.

Hayabusa2 successfully touched down on a tiny flat surface on the boulder-rich asteroid in February, when the spacecraft also collected some surface dust and small debris.
