Following NASA's DART mission, a mission of the European Space Agency called Hera Didymos and its Moon will visit to collect important and detailed information. Watch a video starring astrophysicist and queen guitarist Brian May.
Take three minutes to see astrophysicist and Queen guitarist Brian May tell about the planned European Space Agency (Hera) mission planned for 2026. The larger asteroid is called Didymos. This system is typical of the thousands who pose a threat to our planet, and even the smaller of the two small asteroids ̵
In 2022, NASA will crash its DART spacecraft against the smaller asteroid of the Didymos system, known as the Didymoon. A few years later, Hera will map the resulting impact crater and measure the mass of the asteroid. Hera will have two CubeSats on board, who will be able to approach the surface of the asteroid and conduct important scientific studies before setting up.
The Hera mission will be presented in November at an ESA meeting where European Space Ministers make a final decision on the mission's flight.
