Japan space probe drops explosive on asteroid to make crater

Japan’s space agency says its Hayabusa2 spacecraft has released an explosive onto an asteroid to make a crater on its surface and collect samples to find possible clues to the origin of the solar system. The asteroid, named Ryugu, is about 300 million kilometers (180 million miles) from Earth.

The probe actually dropped bombs on asteroid instead of crashing into it in a Mitsubishi A6M Zero for the emperor? Looks like the Japanese have come a long way!

Japan knocks asteroid off its orbit. Now expected to impact the Earth in 12 years. AOC is now correct about the world ending in 12 years.
