Experience the “Web Around Asteroid Bennu” in this interactive, 360° video, optimized for mobile devices and desktop browsers.

Bennu is one of Earth’s closest planetary neighbors – an asteroid roughly the height of a skyscraper, and for nearly two-and-a-half years, the place that NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission called home.

From late 2018 to mid-2021, OSIRIS-REx wrapped Bennu in a growing web of observations, performing maneuvers never before attempted in a microgravity environment.

This 360° video follows the spacecraft as it weaves a continuous path around Bennu, allowing viewers to explore the asteroid from within the web.
