Scientists have started analyzing the material samples returned to Earth by the OSIRIS-REx asteroid mission.
An initial analysis of the sample collected from the asteroid Bennu has yielded some promising results.
The spacecraft touched down in the Utah desert after a seven-year journey to and from the asteroid Bennu.
At a news conference yesterday, the space agency revealed how likely it is that the asteroid will hit us.
NASA's Osiris-Rex spacecraft is now on its way back to Earth with samples collected from the asteroid Bennu.

NASA's OSIRIS-REx probe seems to have hit the jackpot within a week of arriving at its destination.
A NASA probe that launched back in 2016 has drawn up alongside an asteroid that could one day strike Earth.
Rather than ramming or nuking a large space rock, scientists have suggested simply covering it in paint.
The $1 billion space probe is set to collect samples from an asteroid and return them to the Earth.
