ESA’s proposed Hera mission will be humankind’s first visit to a binary asteroid system. Hera's logo was designed by Italian design company, ReMedia. ReMedia first dug out the key elements of the Hera mission: protection from asteroid impact, modelling binary asteroid systems, prevention of asteroid collision, and development of new technology.
The logo creators combined these elements into the design, which depicts the main aspects of the mission. It shows Hera and two CubeSats surrounding the crater left by NASA’s DART spacecraft on the smaller of the two asteroids. The CubeSats will be released close to Didymoon; their capability to take more risks and fly closer to the asteroid will allow them to study the asteroid close-up. They will both carry a suite of state-of-the-art science instruments.
