NASA's Artemis 1 mission will carry 10 cubesats hitching a ride to space. one of them is headed to catch up to asteroid 2020 GE in 2023.

The Near-Earth Asteroid Scout will be traveling to asteroid 2020 GE, a small asteroid about 18 meters across that circles the sun once every 368 days.

The mission will mark the 1st time scientists have studied in detail any member of the smallest class of asteroids, which will help close gaps in knowledge about near-Earth asteroids.
