NASA and UArizona scientists were able to significantly reduce uncertainties about asteroid Bennu's orbit and determine the likelihood of the asteroid impacting Earth between now and the year 2300.
New research by a UArizona undergraduate finds that asteroid 16 Psyche, the target of an upcoming NASA mission, may not be as metallic or dense as predicted.
The gift will allow for the purchase of a nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometer, which the OSIRIS-REx analysis team will use to help find answers to questions about the origins of the solar system.
