Next October 19 an Ariane 5 from Kourou will launch BepiColombo.
BepiColombo is Europe’s first mission to Mercury, the smallest and least explored terrestrial planet in our Solar System.
It is a joint endeavour between ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA, and consists of two scientific orbiters: ESA’s Mercury Planetary Orbiter (MPO) and JAXA’s Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO).
The mission will study all aspects of Mercury, from the structure and dynamics of its magnetosphere and how it interacts with the solar wind, to its internal structure with its large iron core, and the origin of the planet’s magnetic field.
This A&B roll gives an overview of BepiColombo’s mission to Mercury.
