Japan’s Hayabusa2 probe successfully collects first samples from asteroid interior

Hayabusa2, a Japanese spacecraft, on Thursday landed on a distant asteroid named ‘Ryugu’ and collected underground samples that will help scientists to study the origin of the solar system billions of years ago.

It is to be noted that the Hayabusa2, the first spacecraft to successfully collect underground samples from an asteroid, was launched by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa).

In a statement, the Jaxa said that the data showed Hayabusa2 touched down and rose safely after collecting the samples from Ryugu. As soon as the Hayabusa2 rose from a distant asteroid with underground samples, the scientists stood up, cheered and applauded.
