Japanese asteroid hunter touches down

The Hayabusa2's target - the asteroid named Ryugu - is thought to be as old as the solar system itself.

A Japanese spacecraft has landed on an asteroid, travelling 340 million kilometres from Earth.

Although it took four years to arrive at the asteroid, it is expected to return in December 2020 with samples of the rock, which could unlock the mysteries of how our solar system began.
