NASA Explorers | S06E01 | Osiris-Rex: Launch

A journey of a billion miles and back begins with a launch.

OSIRIS-REx's goal: Travel to asteroid Bennu, collect a sample, and return it home. But why Bennu? Meet the NASA Explorers looking for clues to our early solar system in a sample of asteroid rock.

It’s not rockets and satellites that make NASA soar. It’s people.

Go inside the space agency and follow the pioneers, risk-takers and experts at the frontline of exploration. This season, follow along with the OSIRIS-REx team, as they launch a spacecraft to an asteroid, collect a sample of Bennu, and bring it home to Earth.
