What's new in space? The discovery of more water on the moon and how OSIRIS-REX captured asteroid dust a little too well. @bobbyisotopes  of the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium broke it all down for our @McArthurNH1  in this "Star Struck."

After a little bit of drama, OSIRIS-REX has packed up a sample of an asteroid it collected last week. The mission’s managers will now begin preparations to head back to Earth, the @nytimes  reports.

NASA's OSIRIS-REX spacecraft has successfully stowed an asteroid sample that it collected last week. Next stop: Earth, in September 2023.

The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft has secured its samples from asteroid Bennu, moving one step closer to becoming the first NASA mission to return rocks and dust from an asteroid #OSIRISREx  #Bennu  #ToBennuAndBack  #NASA 

After the spacecraft Osiris-Rex lost some of its precious cargo from asteroid Bennu, the sample are now tucked away for the long journey home.

After orbiting the near-Earth asteroid Bennu for nearly two years, NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft has successfully touched down and reached out its robotic arm to collect a sample from the asteroid's surface. That sample will be returned to Earth in 2023.

New images taken by the OSIRIS-REx mission show the historic first touchdown of a NASA spacecraft on the near-Earth asteroid Bennu. The spacecraft collected a sample that will be returned to Earth in 2023.

What cool space stuff are we looking forward to in 2020? I've got: • Four missions to MarsCrew launches from FloridaSuborbital tourism • Osiris-Rex grabs Bennu dust • Starship launch • H3 and/or Ariane 6 debuts • Green run test of SLS • Virgin/Firefly debuts

Hello, asteroid Bennu! Our spacecraft flew over 2 billion miles to meet you. Here, the spacecraft's camera captures a full rotation of the asteroid. OSIRIS-REx will study Bennu for almost a year & prepare to collect and return a sample to Earth.
