"Please take a moment to enjoy the "permanence" of this new world", - said in a statement, JAXA officials published on September 27.
They are actually better than the very first images, primarily due to their clarity - Yes, the images show a dry, rocky object with plenty of rubble littering its surface, and then you have to stop and remember it is an image of a space object 180 million miles (290 million kilometers) from Earth.
The release of the two rovers named Minerva are Rover 1a and Rover 1b, small, 7-inch in diameter vehicles which have been transmitting information in the form of raw data and video.
Two Japanese robots have sent back their first video images from the surface of a moving asteroid as part of an unprecedented mission aimed at shedding light on the origins of the solar system.

Asteroids like Ryugu, which orbits between Mars and Earth, are hot research commodities.
The video is a cut of 15 images that the Rover did on the 23rd of September.
"Within the rover is a motor that rotates and causes the rover to "hop" (jump up) during the rebound", JAXA says on its website.
"I can not find words to express how happy I am that we were able to realise mobile exploration on the surface of an asteroid", project manager Yuichi Tsuda said on the space agency's website. The images arrived on Earth a few days ago, and they show the rocky surface of the asteroid, the sun, and the shadows of one of the rovers.
"Therefore, this hopping mechanism was adopted for moving across the surface of such small celestial bodies".
A series of specially designed cameras - four on the first rover and three on the second - are taking stereo images of the asteroid's surface.
