Join us for a live streamed conversation with BepiColombo experts following Friday morning’s Earth flyby.
Launched in 2018, BepiColombo is Europe’s first mission to Mercury. In the early hours of Friday 10 April, the spacecraft will fly only 12 700 km from Earth for its first “gravity assist” on the way to the closest planet to the Sun.
Guests during the live discussion include ESA mission experts and scientists from some of the instrument teams, who will reflect on the flyby, present data gathered by the different instruments and provide an outlook on the exciting science to come.
Watch in the video below a replay of the live discussion, which was broadcast on ESA Web TV at 15:00 GMT (17:00 CEST) on 10 April.
