A workshop concerning the European Space Agency (ESA) Hera mission will be held to discuss the current status of ongoing activities in support and preparation for the mission. Hera will perform the first rendezvous with a binary asteroid and measure precisely the outcome of the NASADART impact on the binary’s moon.

The workshop also offers the small body community the possibility to discuss possible contributions to the different working groups that have been defined to support the mission development and data interpretation.


The Hera meeting is followed by another workshop devoted to the asteroid Apophis on April 23-24, 2020 at the same venue.
