BepiColombo: first flyby – a mission to mercury

BepiColombo, ESA’s first mission to Mercury, is temporarily returning to Earth for its first planetary flyby on 10 April 2020.

Launched in October 2018, the spacecraft is on a seven year journey to the innermost planet in our Solar System. The first flyby will see the Earth act as a brake. This is to decelerate the spacecraft and fine tune its orbit towards the next scheduled flyby past Venus in October 2020.

BepiColombo is a joint mission between ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency JAXA.  The spacecraft is scheduled to arrive in orbit around Mercury in December 2025.
