Headlands International Dark Sky Park Program Series, 7-8 PM

Join us at the Waterfront Event Center for a presentation on OSIRIS-REx, the first U.S. mission to collect a sample from an asteroid. It
returned to Earth on Sept. 24, 2023, to drop off material from asteroid Bennu. The spacecraft didn’t land but
has continued on a new mission, OSIRIS-APEX, to explore asteroid Apophis. Meanwhile, scientists are
analyzing the Bennu sample OSIRIS-REx dropped into the Utah desert for clues to whether asteroids
colliding with Earth billions of years ago brought water and other key ingredients for life here.
