Event description
Learn about the latest results from missions to Near Earth Asteroids! The first trial of our hybrid talks, with limited in-person tickets.

About this event

This talk will describe the two recent missions which have taken samples at Near-Earth Asteroids, Hayabusa-2 at Ryugu and OSIRIS-REx at Bennu. Hear about the scientific results from the orbital phases of the missions, the dropping of surface landers, and how the material is returned to Earth. The talk will be illustrated with amazing images from these missions.

This talk will be streamed live online via Zoom with a very limited number of pre-booked in person tickets available to attend at the Observatory. Please select whether you require an online or in-person ticket when you book.
