Countdown to BepiColombo Launch!
The ESA/JAXA BepiColombo mission to Mercury will launch at 01:45 GMT (03:45 CEST) on 20 October 2018.
Members of the Europlanet community involved in the mission will be sharing updates from the launch site in Kourou, French Guiana, and at ESA’s mission control in Darmstadt, Germany on our website, Twitter and Facebook.
