NASA ’s OSIRIS-REx Probe Punched an Asteroid in the Name of Science. Here’s What the Mission Could Teach Us
There is absolutely nothing inherently special about the asteroid Bennu.

But on Tuesday, Bennu became the most famous asteroid in the solar system, after NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft made contact with it for a dramatic six seconds to blast loose and collect a sample. “I must have watched about a hundred times last night,” said Dante Laurett...
