OSIRIS-REx Mission To Obtain Samples From Asteroid Bennu

Health Editor’s Note: Asteroids do not change with wind and water which makes them primitive and closer to when the Solar System formed. Asteroid Bennu was chosen to be studied since it is rich in carbon-containing molecules and also because it formed early in the history of the solar system and it is fairly close to Earth.  Could asteroids that struck the Earth’s surface have brought organic molecules to Earth? The OSIRIS-REx mission is going to attempt to take a sample from Bennu, which will be analyzed, and give insight into the solar system billions of years ago…..Carol
