New York: NASA’s Osiris Rex spacecraft brought a sample of the closest asteroid Bennu on Earth, but its success was overshadowed by it. NASA officials said Friday that the United States took a sample of the asteroid earlier this week, but that small pieces of that piece are leaking into space.

Indeed, on Tuesday night, Osiris Rex’s robotic arm collided with rock debris at Bennu and then hit its piece near the ground 200 framed in a collector at a distance of a million miles (a crore km). So that this sample could be sent to Earth, but later the photos showed that this collection device contained a much larger piece than the world thought. The layers of this piece are now spread out into space by skimming.

The OSIRIS-REx team is fighting to prevent this leakage and trying to somehow tie this collector.

The team is unable to guess the
2023 loss due to the instability of the device, the team cannot estimate a leakage from it. If this process continues, NASA 2016 won’t even know how much material it has collected from the asteroid until the capsule returns the sample.

Let us tell you that the $ 32 million small-scale OSIRIS-REx manufactured by Lockheed Martin spacecraft was launched to 200 and was returning with the first sample of the ancient asteroid. The craft will not begin its return trip to Earth until March 800.
