Synopsis Take a narrated tour of asteroid Bennu’s remarkable terrain.
Country(s) of Origin United States
DescriptionNASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft arrived at asteroid Bennu December 2018. Scientists had expected Bennu’s surface to consist of fine-grained material, but were instead greeted by a rugged world littered with boulders. Now, thanks to laser altimetry data and high-resolution imagery from OSIRIS-REx, we can take a tour of Bennu’s remarkable terrain.
