This video shows 82 images captured as NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft touched the surface of asteroid Bennu to collect a sample on 20 October 2020. The sample head touches Bennu's surface for 6 seconds while a bottle of nitrogen gas stirs rocks and soil into a collector. The spacecraft then backs away using its thrusters, as debris fills the camera view.
