European Space Agency / 2015
Asteroid Impact Mission

The Asteroid Impact Mission (AIM) is a European Space Agency’s mission, scheduled to be launched in 2020. AIM will travel to a binary asteroid system – the paired Didymos asteroids, which will come a comparatively close 11 million km to Earth in 2022.

The Science Office has been working with the AIM team to produce all promotional and educational material for this new exciting mission. We produced the first promotional video for AIM and also artist’s impressions, info-graphics and scientific images.

This project was developed in cooperation with our partners at EJR-Quartz. To know more about this mission, please visit the ESA website.
