    An OSIRIS-REx talk

    Published on Sep 7, 2016

    NASA hosted a discussion with representatives from the Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security - Regolith Explorer, or OSIRIS-REx mission. Members of the mission’s science and engineering teams provided an overview of the spacecraft and the science behind the mission. OSIRIS-REx, targeted to launch Sept. 8 at 7:05 p.m. EDT to the near-Earth asteroid Bennu, will be the first U.S. mission to sample an asteroid. The spacecraft is scheduled to arrive at Bennu in 2018, survey the asteroid’s surface, retrieve at least 60 grams (2.1 ounces) of surface material, and return the sample to Earth in 2023 for study. Analysis of the sample will reveal the earliest stages of the solar system’s evolution and the history of Bennu over the past 4.5 billion years.
