Japan's Hayabusa 2 spacecraft reaches cosmic 'diamond'

Hayabusa 2 spacecraft
A Japanese spacecraft has arrived at its target - an asteroid shaped like a diamond or, according to some, a spinning top.

Hayabusa 2 has been travelling toward the space rock Ryugu since launching from the Tanegashima spaceport in 2014.

It is on a quest to study the object close-up and deliver rocks and soil from Ryugu to Earth.

It will use explosives to propel a projectile into Ryugu, digging out a fresh sample from beneath the surface.

  1. I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading extremely slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my
    end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
