A three-dimensional view of asteroid Bennu was created by the OSIRIS-REx Laser Altimeter on NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft.
An article lists 10 ways the UA-led OSIRIS-REx mission's operations and scientific exploration are advancing the asteroid frontier.
3D images taken by the UA-operated OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, flying alongside Bennu, show a jagged boulder that is 170 feet across.
Carina Bennett with the UA-led OSIRIS-REx mission discusses how the mission plans to use crowdsourcing platform CosmoQuest to help map asteroid Bennu.
The UA-led OSIRIS-REx mission has released some of its most detailed images yet of its target, the asteroid Bennu.
NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft took a picture of asteroid Bennu, the Earth and the moon days before going into orbit around Bennu on Dec. 31.
NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft entered into orbit around the asteroid Bennu, making Bennu the smallest object ever to be orbited by a spacecraft.
"The findings are really, really exciting for us," said OSIRIS-REx principal investigator Dante Lauretta during a news conference at the American Geophysical Union meeting.
Observations made during the spacecraft's approach of Bennu reveal that that the asteroid interacted with water in its early history and is an excellent specimen for the mission.
