We Just Made History. Again.

We set out to collect material from the dawn of the solar system – a “first” in United States history. As we celebrate a triumphant close to a seven-year quest, we begin OSIRIS-APEX, our next mission to asteroid Apophis.

Space is Wildcat Country.


WATCH: A chest-mounted 360-degree camera captured exclusive, first-person footage of the celebratory moments immediately after the landing of the asteroid sample on Sept. 24.
