ROBOTS LAND ON NEAR-EARTH ASTEROID: 

Today, the Japanese space agency made history by landing a pair of robots on diamond-shaped asteroid Ryugu.

The tiny explorers are now hopping across the space rock’s rugged surface and sending unprecedented pictures back to Earth.

Ryugu is a near-Earth asteroid that can approach our planet closer than Moon, so exploring it is important.
