In order to deliver the remaining samples back to earth in sufficient quantities, OSIRIS-REx tries to stow them quickly via NASA.
The robotic spacecraft’s OSIRIS-REx team worked hard to stow the remaining samples. The group successfully collected these samples in large numbers. NASA said the samples from the asteroid Bennu leaked so much.
NASA’s OSIRIS-REx was so good at grabbing asteroid rocks that they overflowed.

The OSIRIS-REx team, which is responsible for the investigation, is now working on stowing the remaining samples, which will be sent back to Earth for scientific findings. Mission chef Dante Lauretta told journalists on the phone. He said, “A wealth part of the accumulated heap needed escapes by observation.”
OSIRIS-REx will be released at home with the largest copy filmed from space since the Apollo era. In addition, OSIRIS-REx will be coming home in September 2023. The bulk samples will better interpret the sources of our solar system.
Lauretta said she believes probes are collected in fragments about 400 grams. This is far more than a minimum of 60 grams required.
The scientists suspect that the mass fragments stored in a collector cause a leak at the end of the probe’s arm. This is due to the larger stones that slightly pinched the collection lid.
Fragments stored in a lid create a leak
Around the collecting arm in a cloud it is observed that five to 10 grams more or less remain in the surrounding space. As a result, fragments behave like liquids, which is due to the weightlessness conditions.
“My big concern now is that the particles will go away because of us. We come to a sacrifice of our victory, ”said Lauretta.
As a result, a system for performing a mass determination was abandoned on Saturday due to the risk of additional samples being scattered.
Is NASA in danger of losing its treasure?
The task is to reduce the activity of the spacecraft as much as possible. Also, in order to finally prepare to immediately stow the physicality in a pill on the probe. The result has not yet arrived exactly at the volume of the leak. However, the specialists resembled relatively fearlessly, that would not be the emergency.
“Bennu continues to surprise us with great science and also throws a few curveballs,” NASA Associate Administrator Thomas Zurbuchen said in a statement.
“Even if we have to move quickly to put the sample in a pill, it is not an immoral crisis that we have to hold in our hands. We are so delighted and excited to see what turns out to be a bountiful specimen that will advance science and technology beyond this memorable historical moment for more than decades. ”
