Scientists Think They Have Asteroid Dust
NASA scientists say they found what appears to be "asteroid dust" in a space capsule that landed in the Utah desert. The Osiris-Rex space probe was sent to the asteroid Bennu in 2016 to collect samples, and completed its mission Sunday when a capsule containing the sample parachuted onto a test range west of Salt Lake City.
Scientists on Tuesday said they found "black dust and debris" when they opened the canister inside the capsule. They still have to analyze the sandy particles and have yet to confirm if they are indeed from the asteroid. A news conference will be held in October to discuss the findings.
