A ‘Go’ To Build OSIRIS-REx on This Week @NASA

Here’s some of the stories trending on the weekly video magazine: OSIRIS-REx build go ahead, Budget and security hearing, From here to Mars, Bolden visits JSC, New supplies for space station, and more.

The team that will conduct NASA’s first mission to collect samples from an asteroid was given the go-ahead to start building the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, flight instruments and ground launch support facilities, thanks to a successful Mission Critical Design Review. OSIRIS-REx (Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security Regolith Explorer) is scheduled to launch in 2016 to the asteroid Bennu and return to Earth with a sample of the asteroid in 2023. The mission seeks answers about the organic materials of the early solar system that made life possible here on Earth.
