NASA’s OSIRIS-REx Completes Final Tour of Asteroid Bennu

Early this morning, April 7, 2021, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission completed its last flyover of near-Earth asteroid Bennu. OSIRIS-REx, with its pristine and precious asteroid sample cargo, will remain in the vicinity of Bennu until May 10, when it will fire its thrusters and begin its two-year cruise home.
