OSIRIS-REx Spacecraft to Deliver an Asteroid Sample to Earth – Join us in the Bergeron Lobby on September 26!
Did you know NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft dropped a capsule containing a sample taken from the asteroid Bennu, into the Earth’s atmosphere this week?
Lassonde’s own Professor Mike Daly is the Canadian scientific lead for this mission, and the Centre for Research in Earth and Space Science (CRESS) at York University played a pivotal role in the instrumentation for the spacecraft.
At the ROM on Sunday, September 24, chat with Jim Freemantle and Jeff Seabrook, Lassonde researchers who worked on the mission, spoke and watched as the capsule landed via live stream. If you couldn’t make it on Sunday, stop by the Bergeron Centre Lobby on Tuesday, September 26 to meet the researchers and hear about their experience working on this mission.
Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to watch an asteroid sample delivered from space with commentary and insights from researchers who were involved in the project!
