NASA is set to unveil the findings from the asteroid sample collected by its OSIRIS-REx spacecraft. The livestream event is scheduled for 11 AM ET on Wednesday, October 11.

The spacecraft collected rocks and dust from the near-Earth asteroid Bennu in 2020 and returned the sample to Earth in September. Scientists have been conducting initial analyses on the material, which could provide insights into the formation of the solar system and the origins of life on Earth.

The mission exceeded expectations by capturing a larger sample than anticipated, sparking excitement among researchers eager to uncover its secrets. Stay tuned for NASA's livestream event to get a first look at the asteroid sample and the discoveries it holds.
