Asteroid sample-return mission operated by the  Japanese Space Agency, JAXA

Explanation:
Hayabusa 2 is a Japanese mission launched in  December 2014 on a six-year mission to study the asteroid Ryugu and to collect samples to bring to  Earth for analysis. It arrived at the asteroid in June 2018. Hayabusa 2 fired an impactor into the asteroid in February 2019 to create an artificial crater. This allowed the spacecraft to collect a sample from beneath the surface of the asteroid. It will bring the asteroid sample to Earth in 2020.
