The composite ESA/JAXA BepiColombo spacecraft comprises the Mercury Transfer Module (MTM), the Mercury Planetary Orbit (MPO), a Sun Shield and the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO). In fact, the BepiColombo mission is based on two spacecraft: the ESA-led MPO, a three-axis stabilised and nadir-pointing spacecraft with 11 experiments and instruments, and the JAXA-led MMO, a spinning spacecraft carrying a payload of five experiments and instruments.
