Abstract

The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft completed the first part of the primary objective by successfully sampling the surface of asteroid (101955) Bennu and storing the acquired sample in the re-entry capsule. The sampling 'Touch-And-Go' (TAG) maneuver was performed nominally at the primary sampling site, Nightingale, in Bennu's Northern hemisphere. As a consequence of the TAG, material at the sampling site was mobilized and the morphology of the area was altered. This event offered a unique opportunity to investigate in detail the subsurface of asteroid Bennu giving access to fine grained and less altered material from Nightingale crater.
