Incredibile? Non so se hai visto chi è andato in Parlamento in Italia negli ultimi trent'anni, questo sì che ha dell'incredibile, a confronto catturare asteroidi è una passeggiata.

This concept image shows an astronaut preparing to take samples from the captured asteroid after it has been relocated to a stable orbit in the Earth-moon system.

Hundreds of rings are affixed to the asteroid capture bag, helping the astronaut carefully navigate the surface.
