Here is a great article and video of Bennu and how our NASA probe slipped into orbit around this object. OSIRIS (the NASA sampling probe) is circling this large rock target. it is approximately 500 meters wide. NASA's probe is CIRCLING in orbit, one mile from / above the Bennu's surface. This is an important accomplishment because it is the closest orbit of a small body that basically has no gravity. It is a very challenging endeavor that has now been accomplished.
