The Japanese space agency has released amazing pictures taken by a rover standing on top an asteroid. If you didn’t already know Japan has became the first country to land a probe on an asteroid.

The images, sent down from the surface of the asteroid Ryugu, show the rock in amazing and eerie detail. It’s mind-blowing to think these images have been sent back over an astounding distance of around 180 million miles!

One of the pictures includes the shadow of the antenna and pin of the rover itself.​ The pin – which is the long line that can be seen sticking out of the rover.

Jaxa, the Japanese space agency, says that both of the rovers are “in good condition and are transmitting images and data”.
