BepiColombo prepares to fly by Venus
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency describes the BepiColombo mission as it prepares to fly by Venus.
BepiColombo was launched on October 20, 2018 and made a flyby of Earth this year in April.
The spacecraft will approach Venus on October 15. Scientific instruments will be activated to study the planet as the spacecraft approaches, and “selfie cams” will be used to cautious capture images.
