On October 21st, 2020 the NASA OSIRIS-REx spacecraft ‘tagged’ an asteroid (‘Bennu’) over 200
million miles from Earth and collected a sample of material for testing and examination – a first for the United States. iNRCORE congratulates the teams at both NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the University of Arizona for a successful milestone in what has been a historic, multi-year mission. Originally launched in September 2016, the OSIRIS-REx (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) spacecraft will now begin its return journey to Earth, expected to arrive in September 2023. iNRCORE is proud to partner with the OSIRIS-REx team, supplying ruggedized power magnetics essential to the mission operations.
