JAPAN (VOP TODAY NEWS) – The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) published photographs from the surface of the asteroid Ryuga.

The photos were taken after two Japanese rovers launched from the Hayabusa-2 probe made the first successful landing on the surface of the asteroid and were able to send photos.

The rovers separated from the September 21 probe. As reported on the site JAXA, the devices are in working order. At the same time, at least one of the rovers continues to move along the surface of the asteroid.
