Bennu in unprecedented detail
It's the highest resolution image ever of a planetary body.
This global map of the asteroid Bennu is a mosaic of 2155 PolyCam images stitched together and corrected.
They were collected by NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft between 7 March and 19 April, 2019, at distances ranging from 3.1 to five kilometres above the surface.
At five centimetres per pixel, this is the highest resolution at which a planetary body has been globally mapped.
This detailed view of Bennu was used by the mission team during their selection of the primary and backup sample collection sites - Nightingale and Osprey.
