Osiris-Rex is coming home. Nasa's robotic prospector reached asteroid Bennu in 2018 and spent two years flying near and around it, before collecting rubble from the surface in October 2020. It is estimated that the spacecraft has collected between 200gr to 400gr of samples, cited as Nasa’s biggest cosmic haul since the Apollo moon rocks. The trip back home started yesterday and

We have just launched our NEOROCKS YouTube Channel. We’ll be updating it regularly and for now you can find our partners e-lightning talks from the 7th IAA Planetary Defense Confererence. It’s Friday, settle down this evening with a glass of wine and some popcorn and learn some more about Near Earth Objects! Photo by GR Stocks on Unsplash

Hot of the press! Our own Ettore Perozzi from the Italian Space Agency was interviewed for the Horizon Magazine. Have a look here at what he had to say about “how do we know if an asteroid headed our way is dangerous?” and about what NEOROCKS is doing to assess the threat of near earth objectives in rapid time.

The 7th IAA Planetary Defense Confererence will be held (online) on April 26-30, 2021. Hosted by UNOOSA in collaboration with ESA, the bi-annual conference brings together world experts to discuss the threat to Earth posed by asteroids and comets and actions that might be taken to deflect a threatening object. Our NEOROCKS partners will be there of course! Fabrizio Bernardi from Spacedys will

On this day, in 1564, Galileo Galilei was born. Astronomer, philosopher, physician…he played a central role in modern science. His observations of the solar system, including the Moon, Jupiter, Venus and the Sun, lead to discoveries that revolutionised our knowledge of the universe. While looking at Jupiter, for instance, he discovered its four moons. The newly discovered bodies were named Medicia sidera

The project PRISMA (First Italian network of systematic surveillance of meteors and atmosphere) aims to set up an Italian network of all-sky cameras for the observation of exceptionally bright meteors (fireballs and bolides). The objective is to determine the orbits of the objects that cause them and establish, with a good degree of approximation, the areas in which their fragments

This week, NASA’s Osiris-Rex spacecraft completed its “tag-and-go” manoeuvre to collect surface rock from asteroid Bennu. This is an amazing achievement, reported all over the world. We’ve collected some great press articles for you, so you can find out more about this mission and why it is so important: Official NASA Oxiris Rex Page (In English) BBC News “Elation as Nasa's Osiris-Rex probe
