The BepiColombo mission consists of two individual orbiters: the Mercury Planetary Orbiter (MPO), that will map the planet, and the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO), that will investigate its magnetosphere.
BepiColombo will help reveal information on the composition and history of Mercury, and the history and formation of the inner planets in general, including Earth.
