Closing in: the latest view of asteroid Bennu from OSIRIS-REx
The latest view of asteroid Bennu from OSIRIS-REx, as the space craft closes in on its target following two years, and 2 billion kilometers, of space travel. Switching to its "MapCam" instrument as it carries out reconnaisance, instruments on board OSIRIS-REx will identify a suitable spot from which to take a sample and bring it back to Earth.
