Thanks, Pandaneko. Is the mission being well-covered by the Japanese media? Wondering if you and other people in Japan will get updates faster than the rest of us.


Not at all. I am upset about it, actually. There were many reporters at the press conference from many different media groups, but they
do not seem to write about rovers. My guess is that their bosses ignore them and send their draft articles straight into dustbin.
MASCOT may get more publicity when it lands on Ryugu because it is not Japanese by origin.

Translation of the latest input from JAXA. Please refer to the main page of JAXA in Japanese as there is no Engolish version yet available
with corresponding photos.

2 rovers were seperated from H2 on 21 Sept. (13:06 JST)

It has been confirmed that both safely landed on Ryugu and are both healthy. They took photos and obtained other data and
that they are even hopping on Ryugu surface has been confirmed.

What follows are the photos from these rovers.

Figure 1:

13:08 on 21 September 2018 by rover 1A, in colour, immediately after seperation while it is spinning. In the photo an object
above is H2 and object bellow is Ryugu surface. Blurring is due to the spin.


Figure 2:

13:07 JST on 21 September 2018 by rover 1B, in colour, immediately after seperation. Righhand below is Ryugu.


Figure 3:

11:44 on 22 September 2018 by rover 1A, in colour.

This photo was taken while it was hopping. Righthand half is Ryugu.


MINERVA-Ⅱ operati0n will continue and there will be more photos.
