Landing on 1 km-wide asteroid offers opportunity to learn how to do things with almost no gravity

Sep 24, 2018

Rob Thacker drops by from Saint Mary's University to tell Mainstreet host Bob Murphy why the Japanese space agency, JAXA, is dropping a series of rovers on a small asteroid, and how the rovers will work since there's not enough gravity for a traditional rover to operate. Follow Rob on twitter @DrRob_Thacker; and Mainstreet @Mainstreethfx
