This week, OSIRIS-REx continued TAG Rehearsal phase operations. The spacecraft remains in a 1-km safe-home orbit, and has completed approximately 13 orbits after performing the low-altitude flyover of backup site Osprey on May 26. Since arriving at the asteroid in December 2018, the spacecraft has completed a total of 276 orbits around Bennu.

The mission team continues to prepare for the upcoming Matchpoint Rehearsal, which is scheduled for Aug. 11.
