Hayabusa 2 arrives at Ryuga!

After more than three years and hundreds of millions of miles, the Japanese space probe Hayabusa 2 has arrived at its destination. Scientists plan to drop several landers onto the tiny asteroid, and even blast a hole in it. The probe will then retrieve samples of Ryugu and return them to Earth in 2020.
