NASA is readying for the next big mission: OSIRIS-REx
As we sit tight for Juno’s first close-up pictures of Jupiter on August 27, NASA keeps on investigating our nearby planetary group to answer major inquiries regarding how we came to be, the place we are going and whether we are distant from everyone else in the universe.
“Juno is the most recent case of the exceptional science we need to anticipate right in our own particular close planetary system,” said Jim Green, Director of NASA Planetary Division.
“There are numerous unfamiliar, promising universes and items we are excited to investigate with our present and future missions,” he included an announcement.

In September, NASA will dispatch OSIRIS-REx (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith Explorer) – the principal US mission to a close Earth space rock (Bennu) to gather a specimen for come back to Earth in 2023. It is a potential Earth impactor and is recorded on the Sentry Risk Table with the third most elevated rating on NASA’s site.
OSIRIS-REx will open privileged insights of the historical backdrop of our nearby planetary group, and shed light on how life may have come to be on our planet.

The James Webb Space Telescope (Webb telescope), set to dispatch in 2018, can watch faint items over the universe as well as our neighboring planets and their moons inside our close planetary system.
Webb’s rakish and ghastly determination will permit us to watch these objectives with remarkable affectability and even take after geologic action.
With Juno investigating Jupiter, NASA is additionally fascinated by its biggest moons.
Io’s extraordinary topographical action makes it the most volcanically dynamic world in the close planetary system, something Webb could possibly catch up with.
The US space organization has chosen nine science instruments for a future mission to explore whether Europa — a secretive moon that researchers accept to have a fluid sea underneath its frosty surface — has tenable situations.
Hubble, with its suite of updated instruments, has caught Jupiter’s auroras and discovered confirmation of saltwater on Jupiter’s biggest moon, Ganymede.
The mission has been augmented an additional five years, and NASA anticipates that it will keep on providing great science.
“NASA’s Cassini shuttle keeps investigating Saturn, its rings and moons, as it has subsequent to 2004. In 2017, amid the last period of its long mission, Cassini will finish 22 plunges through the restricted crevice between Saturn’s external environment and its rings,” the announcement read.
Titan is one of the significant satellites of Saturn, with a rich environment and surface science that has been watched widely by Cassini and ESA’s Huygens Probe.
After Cassini’s central goal closes, Webb will start operations, giving an incredible stage to proceeding with investigations of Titan with its one of a kind new capacities.
“On our trip to Mars, we are nearer than at any other time to sending American space travelers to our neighboring Red Planet,” Green noted.
The following Mars wanderer planned for dispatch in 2020 is under development and NASA’s InSight Mission to think about the inside of the Red Planet is booked to dispatch in 2018.
