QUOTE (Explorer1 @ Jul 22 2020, 11:43 AM) *
Looks like an interesting decision to make: a trajectory with a longer travel time to the rendezvous but another asteroid flyby in the meantime, or a shorter flight time but including a Venus flyby.
Either way, these rocks are absolutely tiny (Half the size of the ISS), definitely the smallest objects ever visited by a spacecraft (including the Didymos moon). Exciting!

Sample return same for either -- Dec 2020. The options are EVEEA: Venus (2024) Asteroid (2029) --or-- EAEEA: Asteroid (2026) Earth (2028) Asteroid (2031)

So not all the earth swingbys are mentioned in either proposal.
