Pictures from the Japanese space probe Hayabusa 2 show the moment she touched the second time the asteroid Ryugu on July 11th.

This frame, which consists of still images taken at intervals of 0.5 to 5 seconds, shows an overview of the movement, which led to the collection of new samples from the probe.

After touching the asteroid, the probe fired a metal bullet to blow out samples it could shoot before it lifted back, Space.com said.
