After blasting off toward a diamond-shaped asteroid in 2014, Japan's Hayabusa 2 probe reached its target more than three years later. It then began mapping the rock known as Ryugu (which means "Dragon Palace" in Japanese) before sending two of its rovers down to its surface last September, followed by its MASCOT robot in October. The fruits of its labors arrived thereafter in the form of some epic images of the asteroid, including a detailed close-up of its surface. But it's not done yet. Next up, the probe itself will land on the surface at 8AM local time on February 22nd in order to begin collecting samples, Japan's space agency JAXA announced on Wednesday.
