Event Details

Miss our event on OSIRIS-Rex on Tuesday? Fret not and join us on Saturday for a re-watch party and an update on the mission.  

Event recap: How do you dance on an asteroid? What can an asteroid tell us about our past and our future? Join the CCSSC crew and special guests for a 30-minute discussion on NASA’s mission to collect samples from asteroid Bennu, which could tell us about the earliest history of our solar system. We’ll talk about the launch in 2016 (which CCSSC webcasted from Florida), and the current TAG phase of the mission marking the first time NASA will collect pieces of an asteroid and return them to Earth for study.  This will be the largest sample return from space since the Apollo program.
