NASA asteroid-sampling mission on track for delivery next year

The spacecraft at the center of NASA’s first asteroid sample return mission has altered its trajectory in preparation for its return to Earth next year. 

On Sept. 21 OSIRIS-REx spacecraft fired its thrusters for 30 seconds for a course correction. This is the first time the spacecraft carrying a sample of the near-Earth asteroid Bennu has altered its trajectory since leaving the space rock on May 10, 2021.
