Flight operations continued normally this last week.  The team finished up the OSIRIS-REx Laser Altimeter (OLA) regression test checkout with the new flight software in place and are now running an analysis of the results. The second in-flight checkouts of LIDARs 1 and 2 were also run on January 29 and February 2.

As of today, the spacecraft has traveled a total of 1.35 billion kilometers since launch in September 2016.
