He said the probe seemed to have fired a bullet into the Ryugu asteroid, created to puff up surface material for analysis back on Earth.
The initial touchdown on the asteroid was postponed in October a year ago as JAXA found the surface of the asteroid, which is about 300 million km from the Earth and 900 meters in diameter, to be rockier than it first thought and needed more time to ensure the safe landing of the probe.
