For the robotic arm of OSIRIS-REx, NASA has selected a location named Nightingale, which is a 16-meter rocky region, in diameter.

Following a four-year venture, NASA's mechanical shuttle OSIRIS-REx will slip to space rock Bennu's stone tossed surface on October 20, landing for a couple of moments to gather rock and residue tests, the office said Thursday.

Researchers trust the mission will help extend our comprehension of how planets shaped and life started and give knowledge on space rocks that could affect Earth.


"The TAGSAM (Touch-And-Go Sample Acquisition Mechanism) has only been in contact with the surface for five to ten seconds for a long time and difficult job for that party," said Mike Moreau, named venture manager for OSIRIS-REx.

NASA has picked a site called Nightingale, a rough territory 52 feet (16 meters) in measurement, for the shuttle's automated arm to endeavor to gather an example, since it holds the best measure of unhindered fine-grained material.

The rocket, about the size of an enormous van, should land in a territory about the size of a couple of parking spaces, taking consideration to abstain from encompassing stones.

Since the shuttle and Bennu will be roughly 207 million miles (334 million kilometers) from Earth, it will take about 18.5 minutes for signs to go between them.

This forestalls the live telling of flight exercises, so the shuttle should play out the grouping independently.

OSIRIS-REx should gather in any event 2 ounces (57 grams) of Bennu's rough material to take back to Earth, the biggest example get back from space since the Apollo program.

On September 24, 2023, it transmits its payload to Earth.
