A Lab Built for One Mission: OSIRIS-REx
NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission will be bringing back samples from the asteroid Bennu in a few short years. We went to the lab where these samples will be analyzed at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Ariz., and got a tour of the lab with facility manager Dr. Tom Zega. Listen in as Dr. Zega discusses the incredible lab instruments and researchers that work in this amazing facility, named the Kuiper Material Imaging and Characterization Facility at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at UA.
