Every Extraterrestrial Body We Have Landed On and Photographed
In this awesome poster we see every extraterrestrial body we have landed on and photographed. The original image was shared yesterday on reddit but a commenter astutely noted that the visual forget to mention Itokawa, a tiny asteroid that measures approximately 630 ± 60 m long and 250 ± 30 m wide. In the updated poster above, I added a photo from Itokawa to the image.
Itokawa was the target of Japan’s Hayabusa space probe and is the smallest asteroid ever photographed by a spacecraft. It was officially named after Hideo Itokawa, a Japanese rocket scientist. [source]
