Today we have to talk about the mission of asteroid study and sample-compensation done by NASA named Osiris-Rex. OSIRIS-Rex full name is Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, and Regolith Explorer. So let's get some information about OSIRIS-Rex.
Osiris-Rex has been launched by NASA on September 8, 2016. The main goal of this mission is to get samples of at least 60 grams from near carbon at Earth. Osiris-Rex reached Bennu proximity on December 3, 2018 and analyzed its surface for the sample area of the target. Osiris-Rex is expected to return to Earth on December 24, 2023 with its model.The cost of Osiris-Rex is estimated to be around US$800 million. This mission is known as the science mission of these third planets chosen in the New Frontiers Program. Engineering and Navigation is done by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center to manage this mission. This spacecraft successfully maneuvered its first depth space by changing its speed by using 435m / s by using 354 kg of fuel.
Osiris-Rex continued the cruise phase until his encounter with Bennu in December 2018, after which he entered his science and sample collection phase. In this phase, Osiris-Rex has been used to search the objects near the Earth. The Osiris-Rex team used to find materials talking about 135 surveys of images every day to be processed by the scientists of Arizona University.
Through the PolyCam tool on Osiris-Rex portrayed the Jupiter planet and its three moons, Calisto, Io and Ganymede. Osiris-Rex was told by NASA on December 3, 2018, that it was at a distance of 19 meters and Bennu B matched with speed and rotation. The initial spectroscopic surveys of asteroid's surface by the spacecraft found the presence of hydrated minerals in the form of clay. Oscars-Rex's camera suite includes PolyCam, MapCam and SamCam.
Osiris-Rex receives global mapping and recordings of high-resolution imaging and sample editing and receives information on asteroid bennu. This spacecraft receives images with high resolution images, reaching the asteroid with an 8-inch telescope and a PolyCam.
Osiris-Rex is a scanner and LIDAR device of the Laser Altimeter, through which high-resolution topographical information is provided during the entire mission. The spacecraft Thermal Emission Spectrometer collects the thermal emission spectral data from 4-50 μm, including mineral and thermal emission spectroscopic maps and the candidate provides the local statistical information of sample sites.
Osiris-Rex is known as NASA's first asteroid sample return mission. Visible on the Osiris-Rex and the presence of oxygen and hydrogen atoms in the data obtained by the Infrared Spectrometer, which is known as "hydroxyls". The primitive instability and organics for this mission it is known as the best model to study the composition.
This mission is conducting an early survey of asteroid. This spacecraft flies to the northwest, isolated and South Pole in the bennu's nearby 4.4 mile to better determine the set of asteroid. Bennu is a substance near the Earth, which is a mass of 492 meters and a mass of 7.8 * 1010 kg it completes the orbital rank of every 436.604 days.
Osiris-Rex will be a guide to the future spacecraft, which will re-examine the newly discovered threatening things. The Osiris-Rex Flight System is made up of a Spacecraft bus. Osiris-Rex, a few images captured by the spacecraft, has shown a huge shot and two close-ups in the asteroid in the northern hemisphere.
