Project Asteroid: Mapping Bennu

Project Asteroid: Mapping Bennu

Follow a team of engineers, professors, students and scientists on a new mission.

In 2016, NASA embarked on a new and unique mission: sending the Osiris-REx spacecraft to rendezvous with the asteroid Bennu to study the rocky space object and collect samples to return to researchers. Follow the team as they count down to the mission launch date, and profiles selected team members who give their personal perspectives on the challenges and rewards of this high-stakes undertaking.
