John Batchelor and I welcomed back William (Bill) Harwood, CBS Space News Reporter, to update us on the OSIRIS REx findings at the asteroid Bennu. The mission has found clear signs of water-rich class on the surface plus ejections from the surface that either break free of the Bennu weak gravity field, fall back down to the surface or stay in orbit around Bennu. Bennu has thus been identified as one of a small number of asteroids known as "active" asteroids. Bill provided a detailed one segment discussion about these findings, OSIRIS-REx mission developments and future plans. As you will hear, the Bennu findings were a surprise and so far are very exciting. Don't miss this short but important discussion.
