The University of Arizona is leading the NASA mission.

The OSIRIS-REx mission to collect a sample from an asteroid reached a milestone this week when scientists revealed the exact location of where they will take a sample from the asteroid Bennu. Arizona 360 learned more about the process researchers undertook to survey Bennu’s surface and select a site.
