Candidate landing sites for Hayabusa2 and its rovers The squares in the center of the map denote the primary (magenta, "L08") and backup (orange, "L07" and "M04") candidate sampling sites for Hayabusa2. "MA-9" marks the candidate site for the MASCOT hopper; it would target the center of the ellipse, and its one hop would take it somewhere else within the ellipse. "N6" marks the likely drop zone for MINERVA-II, which will deploy four microrovers. JAXA
