BepiColombo launch highlights

Highlights from the days up to and including the exciting launch of the ESA-JAXA BepiColombo mission to Mercury.

BepiColombo launched at 01:45 GMT from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. It will make a seven year cruise to Mercury, flying by Earth once, Venus twice and Mercury six times before entering orbit.

It is the first European mission to Mercury, the smallest and least explored planet in the inner Solar System, and the first to send two spacecraft to make complementary measurements of the planet and its dynamic environment at the same time. The mission comprises two science orbiters: ESA’s Mercury Planetary Orbiter (MPO) and JAXA’s Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO). The ESA-built Mercury Transfer Module (MTM) will carry the orbiters to Mercury using a combination of solar electric propulsion and gravity assist flybys.

ESA Euronews: Setting off to Mercury with BepiColombo

Mercury is a planetary misfit, an oddball in the solar system, and this month the BepiColombo mission is setting off to study it in unprecedented detail.
The best images we have of Mercury are from NASA’s MESSENGER mission, which pictured its cratered surface and curious features earlier this decade.
Soon, the joint European and Japanese BepiColombo mission will head there to take an even closer look.

ESA Euronews: Partindo para Mercúrio com BepiColombo

Nesta edição de “Space” vamos olhar para um dos planetas mais misteriosos do sistema solar – Mercúrio. O programa conta com as explicações de alguns dos cientistas que dedicam o seu trabalho a este planeta enigmático.

As melhores imagens que temos de Mercúrio foram captadas pela sonda Messenger da NASA. Mostram um planeta cheio de crateras e com características intrigantes na superfície.
A sonda BepiColombo, resultado da missão conjunta entre a Europa e o Japão, está preparada para um estudo mais aprofundado.

ESA Euronews: Ξεκινώντας από τον Ερμή με το BepiColombo

Καλώς ήλθατε στην εκπομπή Space. Αυτό τον μήνα ρίχνουμε μια διεισδυτική ματιά σε έναν από τους πιο μυστηριώδεις πλανήτες του ηλιακού μας συστήματος, τον Ερμή.

Αυτό το μήνα ένα νέο διαστημικό σκάφος θα απογειωθεί με στόχο να μελετήσει τον πλανήτη που βρίσκεται εγγύτερα στον ήλιο. Οι καλύτερες εικόνες που έχουμε από τον Ερμή, έχουν τραβηχτεί από τον Αγγελιοφόρο, το διαστημικό σκάφος της NASA, πριν λίγα χρόνια.

Αποκάλυψαν έναν πλανήτη με κρατήρες και ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέρουσα επιφάνεια. Τώρα η νέα κοινή αποστολή Ευρώπης – Ιαπωνίας με το όνομα BepiColombo σκοπεύει να φέρει στο φως περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες.

Παρακολουθήστε την κυκλοφορία του BepiColombo ζωντανά στις 20 Οκτωβρίου 2018 στις 3:45 CEST: http://bit.ly/BepiColomboLaunch

BepiColombo stacked for launch

This video footage from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou showing the three BepiColombo spacecraft modules being ‘stacked’ in launch configuration.

BepiColombo is a joint endeavour between ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA. The mission comprises two science orbiters: ESA’s Mercury Planetary Orbiter and JAXA’s Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter. The ESA-built Mercury Transfer Module will carry the orbiters to Mercury using a combination of solar electric propulsion and gravity assist flybys. It is the first European mission to Mercury, the smallest and least explored planet in the inner Solar System, and the first to send two spacecraft to make complementary measurements of the planet and its dynamic environment at the same time.

The mission is scheduled to launch on 20 October 2018 at 01:45 GMT.
