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, …

At Bennu, NASA finds a mysterious boulder-strewn asteroid

Enlarge / These images of the asteroid Bennus northern hemisphere show that it is covered with stones. NASA After NASA's OSIRIS-REx probe, which flew more than 2 million kilometers through space over the course of 27 months, arrived at the Bennu asteroid in early December last year. Since arriving, the spacecraft's five scientific instruments have studied the 490-meter-wide asteroid to …

Nasa: "Apocalypse asteroid" Bennu speeds up, but it can be good news

Scientists have discovered that a huge space rock known as the "Apocalypse Asteroid" rotates faster and faster as it zooms in space. A recent study has revealed that Bennu's rotation increases with time as he wanders through space void. Any change in the motion of a massive asteroid with a very small chance of hitting Earth could sound weird. But, …

NASA offers the best view of the surface of Space Rock Bennu – BGR

NASA's OSIRIS REx asteroid probe has already had a busy year. After arriving at Bennu's space rock in early December, the 2018 spacecraft closed the orbit around the object, making Bennu the smallest body ever to orbit a man-made spacecraft. Now that NASA is Preparing for the Will After a month-long study of the asteroid, the OSIRIS REx team has …
