Space is Wildcat Country

The UA-led OSIRIS-REx mission will sample the near-Earth asteroid, Bennu. The spacecraft arrived at the asteroid on Dec. 3, 2018, and will spend more than a year surveying Bennu before collecting surface matter and returning to Earth.

More than 150 students have been part of this NASA mission since inception, like alumna Daniella DellaGiustina, who began working on the OSIRIS-REx mission as an undergraduate and who is now a full-time member of the OSIRIS-REx team mapping the asteroid. Or like senior Keara Burke, an image processing intern who will present her work at the American Geophysical Union's fall conference, which is unprecedented for undergraduates. Bear Down!
