Japan's Hayabusa 2 probe has released its two miniature robotic landers toward the target asteroid Ryugu.
Though the Hayabusa2 team calls them rovers, these little guys will hop rather than roll from place to place on Ryugu's surface, gathering a variety of data along the way. Unfortunately, JAXA engineers will need to wait a couple of days to receive confirmation that the rovers are ready to perform their scientific duties.
This computer graphics image provided by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) shows an asteroid and asteroid explorer Hayabusa2.
The two robots will capture images of the asteroid and measure temperatures before a larger rover is released in early October.
