The BepiColombo mission could launch for Mercury
October 19, 2018
The European and Japanese space agencies are collaborating to launch this spacecraft, which would be only the third to visit the planet closest to our sun. When it arrives at Mercury in 2025, its two probes will separate to gather information that could help explain how the rocky planets in our solar system formed.
