Japan will collide with asteroids spacecraft will be sacrificed to save the Earth
An Independent report states that JAXA is preparing its Hayabusa2 spacecraft. It will target the asteroid coming rapidly towards the Earth.
JAXA had also launched Hayabusa2 in the year 2014. Then its target was asteroid '162173 Ryugu'. After a journey of 4 years, Hayabusa2 reached its target Ryugu. He surveyed the asteroid for about 18 months and then collected samples from it and sent them to Earth in the year 2020.
Even today scientists are examining those samples in different ways so that the truth related to the beginning of our planet can be revealed. The people of JAXA had said in the year 2020 that it would re-use the xenon propellant left in the mission. JAXA plans to target asteroid 2002 CC21. Not only this, by the year 2031, JAXA wants to target another asteroid '1998 KY26', which often crosses the Earth's orbit.
Asteroid 1998 KY26 is currently about 3 lakh 74 thousand kilometers away from the Earth. Its diameter is about 30 meters. The purpose of this mission of JAXA is to make the Earth safe. The space agency believes that such space rocks collide with the Earth every 100 to 1,000. These can harm our planet.
