NASA to Unveil Asteroid Sample from OSIRIS-REx Mission in Live Reveal Event
NASA is set to provide the public with an exciting glimpse into the asteroid sample brought back to Earth by its OSIRIS-REx spacecraft in an eagerly anticipated live reveal event. The livestream is scheduled for Wednesday, October 11th, at 11 AM ET, offering a unique opportunity for people worldwide to witness the analysis of this remarkable extraterrestrial material.
The capsule containing rocks and dust collected from the surface of the near-Earth asteroid “Bennu” successfully touched down at a Department of Defense training site in the Utah desert on September 24th. Since then, a dedicated team of scientists has been diligently working on their initial analyses of this invaluable celestial payload.
