3-D Model created of asteroid “Bennu”

TUCSON – After studying the asteroid “Bennu” at close range for three months, the OSIRIS-Rex mission created a 3-D model of the asteroid.

University of Arizona scientists helped with the project, creating the model with a 75-centimeter resolution.

It even shows features on “Bennu” that are smaller than one meter.

The 3-D model is available to 3-D print, just click here for more.
