BepiColombo Mercury Mission Poster | ESA

This poster shows artist’s impression of the BepiColombo spacecraft at Mercury: European Space Agency’s Mercury Planetary Orbiter (foreground) and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (background).

The ESA-built Mercury Transfer Module (MTM) will carry the orbiters to Mercury using a combination of solar electric propulsion and gravity assist flybys, with one flyby of Earth, two at Venus, and six at Mercury, before entering orbit at Mercury in late 2025.
