This week, OSIRIS-REx continued TAG Rehearsal phase operations. On Apr. 28, the spacecraft performed TR1R3, the third of four maneuvers to return the spacecraft to orbit after the Checkpoint Rehearsal. The fourth and final maneuver, TR1R4, executed on Apr. 30 and placed the spacecraft into a frozen orbit around Bennu. The spacecraft will remain in its 1-km safe-home orbit until May 26, when it will perform the 250-meter Recon C flyover of backup sample site Osprey.
