Currently, the UofAZ leads the OSIRIS-REx mission, an $800 million NASA mission that will bring back a sample from the asteroid Bennu. The UofAZ also has the most internationally active program to identify and track Near-Earth Objects (NEOs). More than half of all known near-Earth asteroids and comets have been discovered by the UofAZ.
