Launched in December 2014, the asteroid explorer Hayabusa 2 is now cruising in outer space as scheduled. It will arrive at the asteroid 1999 JU3 in 2018, the same year that NASA’s OSIRIS-REx is due to arrive at the asteroid Bennu. Both the Japanese and American explorers are attempting to unlock the mystery of the birth of the solar system. We interviewed the principal investigator of the OSIRIS-REx mission, which is now in preparation for launch, scheduled a year from now.
