Artist’s impression of the BepiColombo spacecraft in cruise configuration. In this viewing orientation, the Mercury Transfer Module is at the rear, its solar wings tilted and extending about 14 m either side of the module. The 7.5 m-long solar array of the Mercury Planetary Orbiter in the middle is seen extending to the bottom, with the high gain antenna to the right, and the magnetometer and medium gain antenna booms to the left. The Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter sits inside the sunshield, its antenna folded inside and visible in this top down view.
BepiColombo is a joint endeavour between ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA.
