Hayabusa-2 of Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) arrived at the asteroid 162173 Ryugu in June. MINERVA-II 1 is a compact rover consisting of two rovers . On September 21, the MINERVA-II 1 rovers separated from the Hayabusa-2 spacecraft. The separated rovers have landed on the surface of asteroid Ryugu. The two rovers are in good condition and are transmitting images and data. MINERVA-II 1 is therefore 'the world's first man-made object /rover to land on the surface of an asteroid'. This is also the first time for autonomous movement and picture capture on an asteroid surface.
