Juventas, the 6U nanosatellite for ESA’s HERA mission, is to perform first radar probe of an asteroid. The radar signals should reach one hundred metres down, giving insight into the asteroid’s internal structure. Juventas – the Roman name for the daughter of Hera – is being developed for ESA by GomSpace and GMV in Romania, together with consortia of additional partners developing the spacecraft instruments.
