Planetary Society Hangout: Naming Bennu, with Mike Puzio and Dante Lauretta

My guests this week were OSIRIS-REx asteroid naming contest winner Mike Puzio and OSIRIS-REx principal investigator Dante Lauretta. We discussed the naming of asteroid (101955) Bennu and what's going on with the OSIRIS-REx mission.

Thanks to a lot of help from Google+ staff, the wayward video has been recovered, so I can finally post the recording! Yay!!
