In a recent article published by sorae on October 23, 2020, an extraordinary video of the asteroid probe “OSIRIS-REx” capturing samples is unveiled. The enthralling footage was compiled from 82 images taken by SamCam, one of the cameras mounted on OSIRIS-REx, approximately 5 minutes before and after the landing. This captivating video was released by NASA on October 22, 2020.
The video showcases the “Nightingale” sampling point on the asteroid “Bennu” (101955 Bennu) as the probe approaches its surface. Watch in awe as the sample collection device gently sprays the surface, with particles seen flying away as a result of the thruster injection during takeoff.
OSIRIS-REx, often referred to as the American counterpart of Japan’s Hayabusa mission, was launched in September 2016 and reached its destination, asteroid Bennu, in December 2018. After meticulously observing the asteroid’s orbit, surface samples were successfully collected in October 2020.
The return journey of OSIRIS-REx began in May 2021 when it bid farewell to Bennu. Currently, the spacecraft is voyaging back to Earth, and the refurbished capsule is anticipated to make its grand return home on September 24, 2023.
The separation of the recovery capsule from OSIRIS-REx is scheduled for September 24, 2023, at 19:42 Japan time. Approximately four hours later, at 23:42 on the same day (10:42 on the same day in US Eastern Daylight Time), the capsule will make its atmospheric reentry. The designated recovery point for the capsule is the Utah Test and Training Range, located southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
Simultaneously, OSIRIS-REx spacecraft will ignite its engines at 20:02 Japan time on September 24, 2023, just 20 minutes after the separation of the recovery capsule, to exit its orbit and commence its atmospheric reentry. It has been confirmed that the OSIRIS-REx mission will be extended following the capsule separation, with the mission’s name being changed to “OSIRIS-APEX” (Osiris Apex). This extended mission will explore the asteroid “Apophis” (99942 Apophis) in 2029 through an orbital survey.
In an exciting development, NASA has announced that the recovery capsule of the OSIRIS-REx asteroid probe will be returning to Earth, reentering the atmosphere during the night of September 24, 2023.
Date: September 14, 2023
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) disclosed on September 11 that a crucial orbit correction operation has been executed to facilitate the safe return of the recovery capsule of the OSIRIS-REx asteroid probe back to Earth. Stay tuned for more updates…

sorae – NASA’s Osiris-Rex asteroid probe releases video of sample collection
This was submitted by sorae in an article on October 23, 2020.Video of sample collection by the asteroid probe “OSIRIS-REx”“in. It was created from 82 images taken approximately 5 minutes before and after landing by SamCam, one of the cameras installed on OSIRIS-REx. * Video released by NASA on October 22, 2020
This video shows the “Nightingale” sampling point of the asteroid “Bennu” (101955 Bennu) approaching, and the surface of the asteroid “Nightingale” being sprayed by the sample collection device. TAGSAM” and the thruster injection during takeoff The image shows the substance flying up.
OSIRIS-REx, also known as the American version of Hayabusa, was launched in September 2016 and reached the asteroid Bennu in December 2018. After repeated observations from orbit, surface samples were collected in October 2020.
OSIRIS-REx, which left Bennes in May 2021, continues to fly towards returning the capsule to Earth, and the refurbished capsule is expected to return to Earth on September 24, 2023.
Separation of the recovery capsule from OSIRIS-REx is scheduled for 19:42 on September 24, 2023, Japan time, and atmospheric reentry is scheduled for 4 hours later at 23:42 on the same day (10:42 on the same day, US Eastern Daylight Time). I am. The proposed recovery point for the capsule is the Utah Test and Training Range, southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
Meanwhile, the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft will fire its engine at 20:02 Japan time on September 24, 2023, 20 minutes after separation of the recovery capsule, and leave orbit to reenter the atmosphere . It has already been decided that the OSIRIS-REx mission will be extended after the separation of the capsule, and the name of the mission will be changed to “OSIRIS-APEX” (Osiris Apex, Osiris Apex), and the mission will be extend to the asteroid “Apophis” (99942 Apophis) in 2029. ) and will conduct an exploration orbital.
