The two satellites that make up the BepiColombo mission to Mercury were presented to the media on Thursday.
This joint European-Japanese venture has been in development for two decades, but should finally get to the launch pad next year.
The two spacecraft will travel together to the baking world but separate on arrival to conduct their own studies.
Thursday's event was the last chance journalists would get to view the full "flight stack", as it is called.
Europe's Mercury Planetary Orbiter (MPO) and Japan's Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO) will shortly be unbolted from each other for some final individual testing, prior to shipment to the launch site in French Guiana.
I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.
