This video combines 189 images captured by the second navigation camera aboard NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on 20 October 2020. The video covers a 3-hour period during which OSIRIS-REx touched the surface of asteroid Bennu, fired gas into the surface, and collected rocks and soil that were stirred up into a cylindrical collection head. The procedure sent rocks and dust spraying across Bennu's surface.
