John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Harold Connolly for a one segment discussion concerning the OSIRIS REx mission to asteroid Bennu and the sample return from Bennu.  We discussed landing at the Nightingale landing site on Bennu and why, the actual quantity of material being collected for sample return, material changes on the way back to Earth, instrumentation operational status, asteroid ejecta, Bennu collisions with asteroid material, Vesta rocks on Bennu, the expectation of finding organic prebiotic compounds in the sample and more. 

Please post your comments/questions for this discussion on our blog for this show.
