Asteroid Shock: How Asteroid Bennu revealed something that NASA scientists were not prepared for Science | news

Because high-resolution snapshots show an asteroid Bennu is actually made of rocks, not sand, as the scientists had originally predicted – and this is a problem for the Osiris Lander, who is about to land on the surface. In fact, the shocking revelation has amazed the world of science. NASA's Osiris-REX has mapped the asteroid's unique surface ahead of planned …

This is the Closest OSIRIS REx has Gotten to Bennu. Just 680 Meters Above the Asteroid

NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft has been at asteroid Bennu since Dec. 3rd, 2018. On that day, it went from traveling to the asteroid to traveling around it. Since then it's been surveying and mapping Bennu. Now OSIRIS-REx (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) has reached a new milestone. On June 12th, the spacecraft executed another maneuver, and in the …

You can help NASA find landing sites on the asteroid Bennu

Calling on all citizen scientists: NASA needs your help. The Space Agency's OSIRIS REx Asteroid Bennu mission requires additional pairs of eyes to identify the sampling site on the asteroid – and to look for other potentially science-interesting objects. The space probe OSIRIS-REx has been in use since 3 December 2018 and is now orbiting the asteroid. The main objective …

NASA's asteroid sample shot Bennu with a laser, and this is the result

NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission has been steadily progressing since the spacecraft arrived at the diamond-shaped space rock known as Bennu a few months ago. The rock ends up being far more , well, dirty than NASA originally expected. Bennu's surface is ready to be dropped on NASA's team that's ready to take a look at the asteroid to collect samples.

NASA's asteroid probe fired Bennu with a laser, and that's the result

NASA's OSIRIS REx mission has been steadily advancing on the diamond-shaped space rock Bennu since the spacecraft arrived several months ago, but not everything went according to plan. The stone ended far more Well, dirtier than originally expected by NASA. Bennu's surface is full of debris, which poses a challenge for the NASA team to decide where the probe must …

Asteroid Bennu has thrown material into space 11 times since OSIRIS-REx arrived

On December 31, NASA's Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification and Security Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) met with Bennu's 101955 Asteroid. As part of an asteroid sample return mission, NASA hopes that the material of this near-Earth asteroid (NEA) will reveal information about the history of the solar system, the formation of its planets, and the origin of life on Earth. [19659002] …

NASA reveals that Bennu asteroid spits particles into space

Asteroids shooting off particles are rare. The likelihood that an asteroid with particle spitting was also selected by NASA for observation is even rarer. This means that Bennu is an active asteroid, of which only a dozen were found among the nearly 800,000 observed scientists. "Feather discovery is one of the biggest surprises in my scientific career," said Dante Lauretta, …
