Dr Brian May, astrophysicist, co-founder of Asteroid Day and the lead guitarist of the British rock band, Queen and colleague Claudia Manzoni teamed up to create incredible stereotypic images of asteroid Ryugu using images captured from JAXA’s Hayabusa2 mission.

JAXA employee Yoshiro Yamada then took these images and created the red and blue image featured on the postcard and stamp so that people can view via red-blue stereoscopic glasses.

Stereoscopic imagery is providing scientists new insights into the true composition and shape of asteroids, forever changing our perception of them.
