Title Hera: ESA’s planetary defence mission
Released: 25/06/2019
Length 00:02:56
Language English
Footage Type Documentary
Copyright ESA – Science Office
Description
Hera will show us things we've never seen before. Astrophysicist and and Queen guitarist Brian May tells the story of the ESA mission that would be humanity's first-ever spacecraft to visit a double asteroid.
The asteroid system – named Didymos – is typical of the thousands that pose an impact risk to our planet, and even the smaller of the two would be big enough to destroy an entire city if it were to collide with Earth.
