Messages to Bennu!

Collection of names is now closed. Thank you for traveling to Bennu on the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft!

Sign up to be notified the next time we send names to space!

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission and The Planetary Society invited you to submit your name for a round-trip ride to asteroid Bennu. Your name will hitch a ride to the asteroid, spend 500 days there, and return in the Sample Return Capsule to Earth in 2023.

Plus your name will be on the spacecraft, which will remain in space long after returning the sample return capsule to Earth.

Like the mission on Facebook for mission updates, plus notifications on just where your name is from launch in 2016 to return to Earth in 2023. Engage the mission on Twitter for late-breaking news.
