Mission Website Link: 

Last week – after a two-year, two-billion-kilometer journey – NASA’s 
OSIRIS-REx spacecraft arrived at its destination 
an ancient near-Earth asteroid called Bennu. OSIRIS-REx is the first 
spacecraft to visit Bennu and the first U.S. mission to return a sample 
from an asteroid to Earth. After the sample is delivered to Earth in 
2023, generations of scientists will study it to help unlock the 
mysteries of the early Solar System.

Yesterday, initial science results 
from the spacecraft’s close-range studies of Bennu – including the 
detection of water locked in the clay minerals on the asteroid – were 
released at the AGU fall meeting in Washington, DC. *Today* (*Tuesday, 
Dec. 11) from 3-4 pm ET (1-2 pm MT)*, experts from the OSIRIS-REx team 
will answer questions on Twitter about the mission and the discoveries 
made about Bennu so far. *Use the hashtag #BennuChat on Twitter to 
submit your questions.*

*What:* Experts from the OSIRIS-REx mission will answer questions about 
asteroid Bennu and what’s next for OSIRIS-REx
*When:* Tue. Dec. 11, 2018 3-4 pm ET (1-2 pm MT)
*Where:* Use the hashtag #BennuChat on Twitter; Facebook users can also
