This week, OSIRIS-REx continued Orbital R phase operations. MapCam, OTES, OVIRS, and REXIS completed scheduled science activities. NavCam 1 also collected images for particle monitoring.

The orbit remains very stable, and the spacecraft has completed approximately 9 orbits since entering its frozen orbit around Bennu on October 31.

The mission team now has all of the necessary data for selecting the primary and backup sample collection sites.
