in asteroid Bennu as the OSIRIS-REx mission prepares to explore and
collect a sample of regolith for return to Earth. The mission is passing
some important milestones soon:

for "Asteroid Ahoy!" weekend! Meet-and-greet OCAMS lead Dr. Bashar
Rizk at 2pm on Saturday, Mission Principal Investigator Dr. Dante
Lauretta at 2pm on Sunday, and fellow OSIRIS-REx Ambassadors who
