Preparing BepiColombo for launch


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features a timelapse of the intensive preparations for the launch of the BepiColombo mission to Mercury.

All of the hard work at Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, was completed earlier this year, and the seven-year space mission was officially launched on October 20, 2018.
