Episode Description
Saturday, Jun 23, 2018 - 11:31 PM    In 2016, NASA embarked on a new and unique mission: sending the Osiris-REx spacecraft to rendezvous with the asteroid Bennu to study the rocky space object and collect samples to return to researchers. PROJECT ASTEROID: MAPPING BENNU is a 30-minute film that documents the construction of one of the critical instruments on board the spacecraft: the OSIRIS-REx Thermal Emission Spectrometer (OTES), the first space instrument to be built entirely on the Arizona State University (ASU) campus. The documentary, in the making since 2012, takes viewers behind-the-scenes as it follows the efforts of a team of engineers, veteran professors, current and former students, and scientists led by the ASU School of Earth and Space Exploration's project manager Philip Christenen.
