The descent was executed following commands sent well in advance by ground controllers near Denver to guide OSIRIS-REx, which stands for NASA’s Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, and Security-Regolith Explorer, down from its tight orbit around Bennu, more than 200 million miles away. The spacecraft collected one sample from the asteroid's surface on February 22, 2019, then fired a copper "bullet" into the asteroid to create a 33-foot wide impact crater.
