        NASA's OSIRIS-REx Begins its Countdown to TAG



        Tucson AZ (SPX) Sep 29, 2020
        A historic moment is on the horizon for NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission. In just a few weeks, the robotic OSIRIS-REx spacecraft will descend to asteroid Bennu's boulder-strewn surface, touch down for a few seconds and collect a sample of the asteroid's rocks and dust - marking the first time NASA has grabbed pieces of an asteroid, which will be returned to Earth for study. On Oct. 20, the mission will perform the first attempt of its Touch-And-Go (TAG) sample collection event. This series of maneuvers w ... read more
