Sampling An Asteroid To Understand The Birth of Our Planet (Smithsonian Air & Space Museum) – VIRTUAL

April 27, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Exploring Space Lecture Series is online!

Speaker: Dr. Tim McCoy, Geologist, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History

On October 20, 2020, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission accomplished something not done by a U.S. space mission in nearly 50 years – sampling the surface of another planetary body. In this talk, Dr. McCoy will share the 15-year odyssey of proposing, building, and launching OSIRIS-REx to sample the asteroid Bennu.

The Exploring Space lectures are made possible by the generous support of Aerojet Rocketdyne and United Launch Alliance.
