Artist's impression of the Mercury Planetary Orbiter after ejecting the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter and sunshield. The down-facing side of the spacecraft in this orientation – and the panel that will face Mercury – hosts most of the scientific instruments. Click here for a labelled view of the instruments.
BepiColombo is a joint endeavour between ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA.
