NASA's OSIRIS REx spacecraft adjusts the speed of the dangerous hunt for the dangerous asteroid Bennu

OSIRIS-REx successfully engineered a motor fire to change its speed while accessing the potentially dangerous asteroid Bennu. The asteroid Bennu is a 1.60-foot (500-meter) space rock that could end up in a collision at some point in the next century with Earth. The asteroid, moving through space at incredible speed, is currently at a safe distance from our planet and …
