HOUSTON, Tx – (WLNS)
NASA has once again made history.
The space organization landed a space craft on an asteroid hurling through space. The small spacecraft known as Osiris-Rex landed on the surface of an asteroid called ‘Bennu.’
In a short window of 16 seconds – Osiris-Rex used a small arm to collect samples off the asteroid before departing.
The asteroid is estimated to be 4 and a half billion years old and could help scientist learn about the past.
