MASCOT (Mobile Asteroid Surface Scout) is an asteroid lander built by the German space agency DLR for the Hayabusa2 mission. It is tiny, only 30 by 30 by 20 centimeters in size, weighing 10 kilograms. It has an internal motion mechanism that will allow it to hop across the surface of asteroid Ryugu.
