NASA has released a set of stunning images captured during its spacecraft's touch-and-go maneuver on the Bennu asteroid more than 200M miles from Earth.
In NASA's video, the probe creates a flurry of dust and rock — which is how it attempted to collect a samples to bring back to Earth.
NASA is celebrating tonight after its OSIRIS-REx spacecraft successfully touched the Bennu asteroid in a bid to collect rock and dust samples from its surface.
NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft made its historic touchdown on asteroid Bennu Tuesday, retrieving a sample from the space rock that will be returned to Earth.
Deep space exploration encompasses exploration missions beyond Earth’s low orbit (LEO).These explorations are majorly planetary exploration missions such as explorations on the moon, Mars, Jupiter and its moons, Saturn and its moons, the Sun and asteroids.One of main objective of these missions to conduct detailed study of these planets and understand their characteristics as well as their atmosphere properties.Another major objective is to study the possibility of sustaining life on these planets, specifically the moon and Mars as the space agencies are focusing on permanent human habitation on these planets.In line with deep space exploration objectives, the space agencies in collaboration with each other as well as educational institutes have planned several missions that will be launched from 2020-2030.There have been various developments such as spacecraft developments, landers and other space probes that are currently being developed that will support deep space explorations.The deep space exploration is a major focus area for all the national space agencies as well as the private entities in the space sector.Technology modes allow the conduction of scientific explorations, wherein they aid in collecting data as well as carrying out detailed investigations of the planet or the galaxy they are specifically intended to.
Careful maneuvering will be required to recover material from the dawn of the solar system

Buckle up, gas giant fans, we're going for a ride on the Juno spacecraft.
A new study published by NASA scientists looks at sunspots, darkened patches on the sun caused by its magnetic field. While NASA has spacecraft that can observe sunspots more closely, the researchers studied them at low resolution as if they were trillions of miles away. The team was going for a simulated view of distant stars to help them better … Continue reading
