Japanese spacecraft touches down on asteroid

A Japanese spacecraft touched down on a distant asteroid on a mission to collect material that aims to provide clues to the origin of the solar system. The spacecraft, Hayabusa2, sent a signal on Friday indicating it had touched down. The asteroid, named Ryugu, is about 900 meters (3,000 feet) in diameter and 280 million kilometers (170 million miles) from Earth.

I hate when China succeeds. I’m glad when Japan succeeds. Is this a silly way of thinking?

China is growing vegetation in space, Japan is collecting samples from asteroids, and America, Trump wants to create a space force to blow things up. Yee Haw.
