This week, OSIRIS-REx continued nominal performance in Orbital C phase. The spacecraft has completed approximately 10 orbits around Bennu since entering this orbit on August 8.

Images from August 29 show particles that appear to be falling back toward Bennu, suggesting an ejection event.

The Touch-and-Go Camera Suite (TAGCAMS) resumed nominal operations on September 2, after initially failing to respond to a routine aliveness check that day. The instrument’s digital video recorder (DVR) temporarily stopped processing commands, but after an internal reset, the instrument resumed nominal operations.
