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.

The NASA asteroid probe OSIRIS-REx detects water on the old asteroid Bennu

A NASA probe that reached earlier this month a small asteroid called Bennu has detected hydrogenated minerals on the rocky, boulder-strewn surface of the small body, suggesting the activity of the water in the distant The past indicates, the researchers said. "Why is that important? That's because minerals need to be hydrated to get clays, so water needs to interact …

Osiris-Rex finds water on asteroids

This mosaic image of the Bennu asteroid consists of 12 PolyCam images collected on Dec. 2 through the Osiris-Rex spacecraft spanning a range of 15 miles. This image of a star's globular cluster through the Hubble Space Telescope is one of the oldest collections of stars known. The cluster, called NGC 6752, is more than 10 billion years old. An …
