Japanese space agency JAXA has partnered with the space agencies of Germany (DLR) and France (CNES) to send a rover to Mars’ moons Phobos and Deimos. If successful, the rover will reportedly become the first-ever to land on a minor body in the solar system. JAXA is targeting the launch of the Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) mission for 2024.
