Hayabusa Space Probe Reaches Next Milestone

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) recently announced their probe, Hayabusa 2, has successfully landed on its designated asteroid, Ryugu.

Scientists believe this Ryugu, and its samples, may reveal the first signs of life in our solar system.

If successful, the Hayabusa 2 would be the second unmanned aircraft in history to collect asteroid samples.
