The OSIRIS-REx mission from start to finish

01-16-2019


Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard shows the OSIRIS-REx mission from its beginning in September of 2016 until its expected completion in 2030.

The goal of the mission, which is the third of NASA’s New Frontiers Program, is to observe and study the near-Earth asteroid Bennu.

OSIRIS-REx will monitor the asteroid from different stations to improve our knowledge of Bennu’s features and composition.
